Virtual Self – Ghost Voices (Lane eight Remix)
Lane eight released a Winter Mixtape earlier this month. It’s one of the best early Christmas current we may have hoped for. Especially his remix Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’. This monitor often has us dancing with its excessive ranges power. But not with this remix.
It’s the opening monitor on the mix-tape. A phenomenal piano, with a quiet “Can’t you say…” as if we’re listening to ‘Ghost Voices’ from one other room. The vocals steadily get louder, nonetheless within the background the piano. Then he provides in a bit a beat, nothing fairly so fast or excessive as the unique. It picks up velocity, however it nonetheless feels calm. With the piano all the time within the background, the music feels very grounded.
The total impact is like sitting in entrance a fireplace, consuming sizzling chocolate within the useless Winter. It’s darkish and there’s snow falling exterior. A sure coziness. Which is a wierd technique to describe a music like ‘Ghost Voices’. But it is a winter mixtape, so maybe that was precisely the sensation that Lane eight was going for.
Whatever the explanation, this remix is nice. it does all the things a remix ought to. It retains the spirit the music alive whereas giving a brand new spin to it. This is Virtual Self: Fireside Edition, and it’s lovely.
