Lane 8 is back on Anjunadeep for the first time in 2018 with not one, but two new remixes of George FitzGerald‘s anthemic track, “Burns.” The “No Captain” producer has been rolling out nothing but gems on his own This Never Happened imprint, including the front-to-back brilliance of his latest full length, Little By Little. The deep house titan was sure to return to Anjunadeep in style with two different flavors of “Burns” remixes, dubbed “Club Mix” and “Morning Mix.” Body and soul euphoria on the dance floor? Slow-sipping a cup of coffee on the porch? There’s a Lane 8 remix for that.
The club mix shifts into gear from the jump, with staccato vocal hits holding serve over warm, rainy day chords. The track drives forward relentlessly with a thudding kick leading the way, as buttery synth drones swirl. Despite opening with frenetic plucks, it’s soon obvious that the morning mix isn’t in a hurry. Airy piano notes tell the story over a kick snugly nestled into the mix. Both mixes are vintage Lane 8, showcasing the artist’s uncanny ability to hone in on a feeling and bring it to bear through his music.
