Just in time for his 17th birthday, Australian producer Joe Mason has released this lofty remix of Ember Island’s cover of “Can’t Feel My Face.” Staying true to the cover’s initial direction, Mason has crafted a worthy interpretation of this emotive tune.
Beginning with grinding electro which belies its true form, this remix quickly transmutes into a shimmering future bass jam. Dripping with emotion, the sharp percussion is offset by an aqueous synth arrangement, but let’s talk for a second about that delectable lead synth. Oscillating in all its dreamy glory, it sets the tone for the entire track, juxtaposed by swift rim shots and whimpering chimes. The bridge takes the vocal samples on an angelic ride, and twists Ember Island’s cover into a journey through the rabbit hole. Grab this gem as a free download, and be sure to stay tuned for more sonic delights from this upcoming talent.
