The elasticity of this song’s lyrics and vocals is proven when it can reach the far far away balearic sea’s sounds. You know, because of the whole balearic disco genre that this supposedly belongs to. And who else than the master of balearic disco than KLar to treat us this beautifully served dish.
When you can take such an overplayed and overmixed song like Gotye’s STIUTK and produce such an enjoyable rendition that knows no situational-listening-rules, you deserve to get shared and spread around. I know this isn’t the first or second time you hear a KLar remix or edit here on EMPT but I guess it was an unsaid consensus the EMPT team reached when I expressed my love for this find.
There’s nothing overly complex about the production of this version. The guitar (which has the strongest responsibility for the whole balearic vibe), the echoed synth chords and all that’s in between give way to a musical sun-bathing session that doesn’t get you sunburnt no matter how long you expose yourself to it.
If your first thought upon hearing play is a Blank & Jones déjà vu, you’re not alone. I don’t know if balearic disco is a fad or here to stay, but while we all figure it out, let us enjoy this with eyes closed and letting our imagination run wild.
