Just when you thought all this Disclosure madness was cooling off French DJ/Producer Norman Doray unleashes his take on one of their biggest tracks to date: “Latch”. We voted Disclosure as the breakout artists of the year for 2013 – and for good reason. Disclosure are an absolutely groundbreaking duo who took the world by storm with their feel-good productions and live performances (with instruments). You might know Norman Doray for his work with Steve Angello’s Size Records – Doray’s productions hang in the realm of Progressive House, Big Room House, and French House. Norman Doray’s track “Filtre” was one of my favorite Progressive House tracks from 2013 and when I saw he did a remix of “Latch” I had to take a listen. We know the original mix of “Latch” as being a tame love song, meant more for the bedroom than for the main stage. Norman Doray’s version speeds it up and adds main stage flavor to the whole thing, with a more Progressive and Big Room sound. There’s less of a focus on the vocals and more of a focus on a high-energy hands-in-the-air feeling thanks to Doray. I like that the French producer was able to work in some ravey vibes during the verses while moving the choruses over to an epic 100,000 smiling crowd feel (think Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, etc).
Solid work with this production overall. **Norman Doray is offering the track for free download on his website www.normaydoray.com and all you have to do is sign up for his email list at the top of the page.**
