Solarstone’s new single excursion sees the Pure Trance guardian dip back into the sonic riches of his latest album. For his latest single ‘Lovers’, he’s teamed up with cult New York-based synth-pop outfit Lemon, incl. remixes from Alucard and our very own Giuseppe Ottaviani.
The production and vocals of ‘ Lovers’ draw affectionate inspiration from a wide artistic palette, with Erasure, Depeche Mode, Roxy Music and Joy Division being just some of its many touchstone influences. Featuring introspective and deeply personal lyrics & vocals from Lemon’s frontman Roger D. Smith, ‘Lovers’ lays and layers them against crisp percussion, atmospheric analogue synths and brilliantly stagey drum rolls. Giuseppe matches the tone of the vocal, fusing a wonderfully mood-filled intro to the opening minutes of his mix. As the remix forms up for the break he introduces shards of melody before finally allowing his sun-kissed synths to dawn over the mix.
Giuseppe’s remix for Solarstone ft LEMON – ‘Lovers’ is out now on all download portals.
