DA Premiere: John Martin – Love Louder (Style Of Eye Remix)
Stockholm’s Linus Eklow is just weeks away from dropping Footprints, his second artist album as the highly evolved Style Of Eye. A little full-length focus hasn’t knocked the Galantis cohort from his steady run of remixes, this month turning his hand to national peer and infamous Swedish House Mafia vocalist John Martin and his impending single for Island.
For an artist now commonly found balancing sharp songwriting with his own melodically tailored sound, there is a sense of throwing things back in reverse for “Love Louder” done Eklow’s way. Bringing things back to the club floor does not impede on the strong vocal pull of the original, but instead utilizes a full-bodied melodic overhaul that sends those emotive and uplifting undertones into overdrive. Whilst Martin does not formally feature on the impending bout of big room songmanship we now know to be Footprints, the synergy between their sounds is undeniable. If the big room is truly finding a creative route of progression away from the hard style kicks then Style of Eye looks sure remain one of its more consistent protagonists by a mile.
Release Date: September 22
