As is tradition in the world of electronic dance music, melodic bass mastermind Seven Lions has promptly released a complementary round of remixes to his iconic ‘Find Another Way EP’ from earlier this year. Drawing upon the talents of his own colleagues and previous associates of his label Ophelia, ‘Find Another Way (Remixes)’ sees ten tracks span the EDM spectrum, covering house, trance, dubstep and even drum ‘n’ bass. Interestingly, spin-offs of the formidable Au5 & Crystal Skies collaboration ‘Remember’ are nowhere to be found in the remixes, although the lead single, ‘Only Now’, is pampered with no less than four unique reinterpretations.
Established names MitiS and Gabriel & Dresden take on ‘Only Now’ and ‘What’s Done Is Done’ respectively, each fusing their own unique styles into their remixes. Drum and bass interpretations from Delta Heavy and up-and-coming Mazare sit alongside magical melodic dubstep sounds from Nurko and Awakened. Seven Lions also supports the rising stars and previous Ophelia recruits, Arpyem and Inukshuk, rounding off the pack with perhaps my favorite remix courtesy of Blanke and finally the public-remix-competition winner Synymata.
