We’re able to premiere the William James remix today. From the gentle, organic opening strains to the anthemic closing moments of ILLENIUM‘s “Without You (ft. SKYLR)”, it’s clear that going big was always part of the plan. Wide sidechain compressions open and close at a slow throbbing tempo, acting as momentary portals into a large, reverberating landscape of soft angelic harmony. SKYLR‘s voice ducks in and out too, interplaying beautifully with soothing bells and an innovative take on sweeps and background textures. An evening closer if ever there was one.
“Ashes Remixes” is out today via Seeking Blue and Kasaya Records. Order it here and tune in below.
