“Love is a potion, mistook by careless fools, and it takes two…
Love is a surgeon, it comes right out the blue”
– Alice Gold
Sub Focus‘ latest effort, Out the Blue, was released today. The five-song EP contains the radio edit and the club mix of the title track which features the beautiful vocals of Alice Gold. Additionally we are treated to remixes by Laidback Luke, Xilent, and XXXY. Overall there is something for everyone on here – the original is Drum & Bass; Laidback Luke’s is Electro-House; Xilent lets it wobble with some Dubstep; and XXXY hooks us up with a beautiful Electronica track that is soulful/loungey House… more laid-back than Laidback Luke’s version (ironic, isn’t it?).
Hard to say which record I like best but I think right now it’s split between the original mix and XXXY’s chilled out and melodic version. (I’ve only just learned about XXXY but I’m going to spend some serious time on his SoundCloud…I have a feeling I’m going to like what I hear.) Let’s be honest here – the UK’s Sub Focus produces awesome music and he’s a hell of a talent. I’d have a hard time saying any of the remixes to this song are better than his original version. If you aren’t too familiar with his work, check out Fallin’ Down, his self-titled album, or better yet go see his live show.
