Label boss Dave Seaman supplies the remix that's got Danny Slade most excited

Grammy-nominated John 'Zoo Brazil' Anderson’s resumé includes production credits for everyone from Giorgio Moroder and Kylie Minogue to Gui Boratto and Kevin Saunderson. Here, he teams up once more with singer-songwriter duo Wolf & Moon, with whom he previously collaborated on 2017's From A Distance, and the result is an epic indie-dance number.

First up is the Original Mix, which features a plucked guitar riff and live-sounding percussion, before the vocals and bassline kick in. Next we have the two Dave Seaman interpretations: one a full vocal and the other a dub. His Vocal Mix starts with a hollow thud for a kick, with a tambourine and synth in the background that play on after the quirky female vocal arrives. There are other sounds in play as the track progresses, but to be honest they're incidental as the main hook is the vocal line, which sounds great.

Seaman's Dub sounds full and accomplished, with an added deep synth lead and idiosyncratic noises that create a great soundscape, plus snippets of vocal and the plucked guitar riff. Then we have the Zoo Brazil Mix, another dubby one with a warm, enveloping sound and sections of the vocal looped throughout. Finally there's the Radio Mix, an edit of the Original.

This is one very tasty release. My favourite is the Dave Seaman Vocal Remix, which for me finds just the right balance between indie chic and danceability.
