Apart from being a superb composer in his own right, fans of dance music are well aware the Krystal Klear is a dab hand at the remix game.
Last year, Klear was responsible for one of my favourite dance cuts, his rework of Jungle’s ‘Beat 54’.
Now, Klear has done the honours on Mark Ronson & Lykke Li’s collaborative single ‘Late Night Feelings’.
The remix gives the melancholy original a new lease of life. The golden hooks remain, but the beat is meaner, almost menacing. Klear has reimagined this shoulder to cry on anthem through the hue of a metropolitan neon glow. Digital synth riffs, arpeggiated bass lines and dry snare rushes provide intensity and motion. It’s less cry your heart out and more dance the pain away.
The original is taken from Ronson’s forthcoming album of the same name, due out on June 21st.
The first single from that project, ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ featuring Miley Cyrus also boasted a supreme remix of its own, courtesy of Dimitri From Paris.
