This remix of the single Forever from Cherry-Ilex effectively reimagines the track in a completely new setting.
Leading with brilliantly interesting, retro flickers of soul and creative sound-play alike, the track makes fine use of a retro bass-line and heavy, eighties-inspired beat to pave its way into the room.
Keeping things mellow yet stylish throughout, the release essentially showcases how truly unique and interesting a remix can be. Far from merely ramped up a few gears, this reworking pays close attention to certain delicate nuances within the song, and accompanies them with infectiously likeable traits and sound-bites – ultimately creating a genuinely film-like experience.
The whole thing washes over like two songs in one – this soulful vocal calling out for intimacy and commitment, alongside this playful, vintage shuffle of a beat and soundscape – yet somehow these two halves make perfect sense together.
The name Cherry-Ilex is proving increasingly creative, offering alternative hit after hit of originals well worth spending time with.
