Chromeo ft. Toro Y Moi – Come Alive (The Magician Remix)
Impeccably fresh and eloquently funky nu-disco dynamos Chromeo are gearing up to deliver what should be a deliciously fun, feel-good studio album, White Women, later this year via Big Beat/Parlophone. Their classically cool comeback campaign began last year when the duo began to tease new music and has since yielded singles and a slew of remixes prior to the album’s official release.
Chromeo’s latest single, “Come Alive,” featuring vocal work by Toro Y Moi is a delectably cheesy, lovably poppy number that rounds up everything the duo does best into a groovy hit with irresistible disco synths and a delightful sing-along hook that could turn any frown upside down. Now, the single is experiencing some creative rework treatment as The Magician delivers a sensual, stripped down yet bouncy deep house remix. The rework swaps the original’s upbeat groove for a deeper, sexy house vibe with minimal techno elements layered throughout. Blending and chopping Dave 1 and Toro Y Moi’s silky vocal cuts, The Magician’s remix sways and slides through a seductive and steamy soundscape.
