Giuseppe Ottaviani & Kyler England – Firefly

By 3rd August 2017April 8th, 2019No Comments

Through the single release of ‘Countdown’, the back at the end of March saw Giuseppe cover some big instrumental bases. As spring turns to summer, the Italian trance maestro draws a more vocal-centric card from ‘ALMA’s album deck. Specifically that means ‘Firefly’ – his fan-delighting collaboration with LA-based songstress Kyler England, which today receives one of Giuseppe’s altitude-achieving OnAir reworks.

With previous credits including work with Tiësto, Myon & Shane 54, First State and others, singer/songwriter Kyler’s no stranger to the electronic music world. Through the subtle metaphor of ‘Firefly’s lyrics and her touching, torch-song delivery, she weaves her singular vocal magic throughout the track.

With his album version almost exclusively highlighting ‘Firefly’s daytime aspects, Giuseppe’s club boosting revision pitches it firmly into the night. The beats herald a more foot-moving thump, its mainline assumes a clubbier stance and the tempo gets a significant uptick. Collectively providing a more uplifting topspin to Kyler’s song, floor-side the OnAir mix delivers in no uncertain terms. You can listen/download the OnAir Mix of ‘Firefly’:

Now, to top it all off, here’s that man Omnia to explore yet more of ‘Firefly’s manifold remix possibilities! 

With the track’s deep and more energised needs handsomely serviced, Ukraine’s finest zeros in on its daytime potentials, with a mix-bullet all-but built for the airwaves.
While channelling the themes introduced by Giuseppe’s original album vision, Omnia summons all the studio nous and techniques at his disposal to send the track in a radio direction. 

To that end, punchy, mid-tempo drums and emotional chord progressions preface the drifting allure of its pianoforte lines. Echoingly, he introduces Kyler’s verse, before break-side looping and coiling its chorus up to irresistible levels. At the top of the drop, he opens it up wide, feeding big, stabbed riffs, fader flips and crowd-flaming FX fills into the mix. Nailing ‘Firefly’s radio end right out of the gate, you can listen/download Omnia’s remix stunner here:
