Stylistically spreading the remix love far & wide, Paul’s commissioned three killer reinterpretations to take ‘Escape’ to other clubbing times and dancefloor spaces.
Keeping the release’s down-under factor high, Sydney’s JaySounds reins in the bpm’s, while boosting its bottom end signature. Dropping the LFO into the sub-bass range, he warps out the synths to fashion a spin that’s as eclectic as it is engaging. Further round the Aussie coast, Adelaide’s Dimatik flips the polarity, taking it high up to the trance heavens. Opening the tempo throttle wide, and backed by the big synths, he infectiously cuts, chops & loops the vocal up, servicing ‘Love Escape’s primetime needs.
Casting a moodier, more proggy silhouette through his mix, David Webster brings a more lamenting vibe to Amba’s vocal. Through scudding drums and tight percussion lines, he engages its drive, while amping up its ether through tubular synths, cyber FX and pad-based sweep.
