PREMIERE: Jarle Bråthen, Sally Shapiro – Purple Colored Sky (Jarle Bråthen Report To The Dancefloor Remix)
Fresh from the release of critically their acclaimed album Sad Cities, Sally Shapiro is back with a new single mixed together with Johnny Jewel. Already appearing on Italians Do It Better’s After Dark 4 compilation, and heard on Moschino’s runway during Milan Fashion Week, the track is now getting a proper single release with a new remix from Jarle Bråthen. Bråthen delivers a dancefloor friendly nu-disco / retrowave take on the song, which Sally Shapiro describes as being “about the euphoria of taking the step from friendship to love.” Speaking on the remix, Bråthen says it was an honour to work with Sally Shapiro. “Since around 2009 when I first got a hold of the Jackie Jackie 12” vinyl, I have been a fan of Sally Shapiro,” he said. “I randomly met Johan Agebjörn at an electronic music festival in the south of Norway where I played a DJ set. He liked one of the tracks I played and it happened to be one of my own productions, so I was very honored when he later asked me to do a remix for Sally Shapiro.” Touching on the process of remixing Purple Colored Sky, he shared, “Initially the remix was planned to be more eclectic with multiple variations. I like the drive of Purple original but I wanted to slow the tempo down a notch and make it more massive so to say. Then we ended up with this version that’s gonna hit your gut and move your feet.” Listen below.
