Every now and then, and specifically on Mondays, I require a bigger pick me up than a tall blonde from Starbucks and a few packets of Splenda could provide. So, I get on my mac, open up my dropbox folder of EMPT goodies, and I almost ALWAYS go on the hunt for that quick pick-me-up type of sound. Normally, I find something vocally soothing that I fall in love with right away and then most of my posts revolve around love somehow. Not the case today.
This morning I went on a 4:30 a.m. run, and then started banging out work before the delivery trucks were even filling up the corner stands with the daily newspapers. I can’t explain how great it felt. Anyway, as I began playing some of these awesome picks of music, I ran head-on into Lenno‘s Remix of Above & Beyond‘s: ‘On My Way To heaven’ and boy what a perfect pick-me-upper it turned out to be.
Steering on a different path than some of his previous remixes, Lenno went straight progressive house on this one, and I’m loving it!
The energy is amazing but not overdone, the vocals are nothing less than perfect in pitch, volume, tone and placement, and the length of the remix [7:26] allows for you to actually leave the experience with some real, and actual energy. It’s a great way to begin your work day, get that much needed boost after lunch, or even a great tune to play right after work when you’re about to get started at the gym.
Energy-filled, smooth transitions, pleasant sound choices and dub step like elements, and a bottom that interweaves in gaps of time to not speed up your heart so much, yet leaving it wanting some more!
Enjoy the rush on this beautiful Monday my friends. This one is quite the Blue’s Smasher!
