JACQUES GREENE, CALIBRE & EMANUEL SATIE REWORK NOCTURNAL SUNSHINE’S ‘GRAVITY’ FEATURING RY X.
These three new remixes will absolutely blow your mind! Back in 2019, Maya Jane Coles and her alter-ego, Nocturnal Sunshine, unleashed ‘Full Circle’, Nocturnal Sunshine’s sophomore LP. Our pal takes the alias in a new direction and dives into hip-hop influences on the album. Maya also invited a mix of collaborators on board from Peaches and Catnapp to Three Six Mafia’s Gangsta Boo and Young M.A.. Remixes of her track Possessed, also happened. Nocturnal Sunshine has been crazy busy because in addition, the song Run To You was released this year.
Maya came together with Australian singer-songwriter, Ry X on the brooding ‘Gravity’. The single now finds new forms with three club-centered remixes from the shapeshifting French-Canadian production talent, Jacques Greene, UK drum and bass heavy-weight, Calibre and Berlin-based Cocoon affiliate, Emanuel Satie. These remixes are amazing and you will be in love with them! They turn the song upside down while still keeping true to the original influences. The package stands as yet another moment in the Nocturnal Sunshine journey, following her contribution to the prestigious BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix back in March, the first time for Maya under the Nocturnal Sunshine cloak. They’re seriously gravity defying.
About the Gravity Defying Remixes
First off, we’ve got an emotional one for you. Grabbing the attention of Maya with his ethereal vocals, Ry X partnered with Coles to create a bubbling and deeply emotive cut in ‘Gravity’. Centered around Nocturnal Sunshine’s synonymous downtempo breakbeats and Ry X’s haunting yet mildly soulful vocals.
The swirling and visceral tone set by the original is carried forward in the rework of Jacques Greene. An artist whose career has presented a myriad of ‘moments’. For instance, his latest also came in 2019 with the arrival of his own sophomore album ‘Dawn Chorus’ on LuckyMe. He took up the tempo with a bumping kick! Greene allows the vocals of both Ry X and Nocturnal Sunshine to take center stage among added rave grit and flecks of his well-known ethereal sound.
Jumping into warming drum and bass sensibilities, Calibre switches up the arrangement with heart-tugging strings and keys. These are all met with body shifting D’n’B wizardry. Meanwhile, Berlin’s Emanuel Satie provides yet another differing take from the hypnotic techno space. An animalistic feel takes hold with the unrelenting 4×4, jagged iterances, and ominous droning bass. These tracks seriously are gravity defying.
