If there is one trance act that LT3 cannot get enough of, it’s Above & Beyond. I could go on all day with superlatives about the biggest trance group on the planet, but I’m sure it would just be pure redundancy at this point. So, I’ll talk about their newest Love Is Not Enough EP. It was just released on their own Anjunabeats label and sports their newest single, as well as a few remixes from some choice producers. It seems that A&B have chosen the cream of the crop this time around, including Kaskade, Maor Levi, Bluestone, and Mat Zo’s dnb alter-ego, MRZO.
Let’s start with one of my personal faves, Kaskade. Known for his chill Cali vocal house, Kaskade comes as no surprise pick to remix this track. What is somewhat surprising, however, is the remix itself. It does not sound a lot like his previous tracks–this time he’s gone a bit trancier. The synth is deeper, the bass is more subtle, and the overall vibe more euphoric. If you’re looking for something a bit harder, look no further. Maor Levi and Bluestone turn things up several notches with their big room remix. If there ever was a proper tech remix of an A&B track, this is it; it builds at all the right places, drops at all the right places, and makes you feel good all over. Finally, Mat Zo gets a remix using his MRZO alias. It may not be the nasty drum’n’bass you might be accustomed to, but nonetheless is a pleasure to listen to. Mat does a great job of tweaking the piano to fit the dnb rhythms just right, and also has some great custom synth lines to give a signature “MRZO” sound to the final product.
