Reunion of Friends
M83 - Reunion (Original Mix) [MUTE]
M83 - Reunion (Mylo Remix) [Naive]
M83 - Reunion (White Sea Remix) [Naive]

With moody voices and blissfully psychedelic influences, M83’s recent single Reunion kicked up a lot of dirt in the indie rock world, but for me it was a few rare, big ticket remixers that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on, but did they impress? Let’s see…

To some, Scottish producer Mylo might be a fresh face but to others the guy is a straight up symbol. His 2004 album Destroy Rock & Roll was one of my first proper electronic obsessions, so seeing him given the task of remixing M83 got me all giddy. He brings us some pure summer indie vibes, with some great rhythmic and solo lead guitar parts to complement M83’s vocals. Hopefully this is a sign of some new work from Mylo as his sound clearly translates to today’s contemporary desires.

Also included was a remix from White Sea, aka Morgan Kibby. She completely reimagines the tune, spacing out the already shoegaze-influenced lyrics on top of some fluctuating interdimensional rift synths. The result is a track that is epic, gentle and beautiful, all to the extreme. Check out Reunion’s official music video below!
