DA Premiere: Jean Michel Jarre & M83 – Glory (16 Bit Lolitas Remix)
“Glory” marked a welcome return from pioneering French electronic artist Jean-Michel Jarre and national peers M83. Having already garnered impressive collaborations alongside Gesaffelstein, Massive Attack and Tangerine Dream for his impending return to the full-length album format, 16 Bit Lolitas join the ranks of Steve Angello and Above & Beyond this month with their own rendition of Jarre’s latest collaborative offering.
With label duties spanning Armada, microCastle and Anjunadeep, 16 Bit Lolita’s long serving reputation for versatile productions has seldom gone overlooked. Behind the wheel of “Glory,” a blissfully dreamy and melodically charged sound scope is executed that hits home the delicate yet powerful production prowess we have come to expect from anything the duo touches. Where there has been a recent tendency for remix packages to focus on stacking buzz artists, the quality of the duo’s latest offerings brings genuinely exciting new textures to the accomplished original. This is a remix no-less intriguing than the return of Jean-Michel and what is shaping up to be a landmark album offering from the French heavyweight.
