Bastille - Of the Night (Morgan Page, Fix8 and MNEK remixes)
The EP due out on Monday includes remixes from MNEK, Icarus and Kove, a stellar line-up that covers all bases. MNEK's gone for the soft house remix route, with a slower tempo and distorted vocals. It has a Passion Pit-esque feel to it which is excellent. It has an excellent build up to a drop in the 3rd minute as well, and combines vocals from the original as well. Good stuff.
Fix8 has gone down a slightly different route, creating what many would consider to be an EDM (electronic dance music) remix that's not dissimilar to acts such as Madeon and Avicii, with a high intensity build up and a massive euphoric drop, much like the latter days of Swedish House Mafia. This brings me to the third remix - one from a producer named Morgan Page. This is actually from several months ago but it needs to be included, it's that good! It's another electro-dance track with big buildups and heavy bass-filled drops and quite brilliantly it incorporates the original sound from the track in parts. Truly excellent stuff.
Have a listen to the original, the MNEK, Fix8 and Morgan Page remixes below.
