Since that time, he has accomplished a great deal including multiple awards as well as hosting his own radio shows and releases on top labels around the world. The remix here opens with a nice chunky kick and hypnotic synths that seem to move effortlessly through the groove. Gritty bass stabs add texture as the beautiful vocal cuts through the murk. A deeper droning bass locks us in mesmerizing the senses with sublime note changes for maximum effect. A truly inspired slice that is a must have no doubt.
