AlunaGeorge – I’m in Control (The Magician Remix)
Known for his iconic remixes, The Magician has graced another artist with his signature sound. This time, he lends his touch to British electronic duo AlunaGeorge’s latest single, “I’m in Control.” The dub-influenced original is a dark, sultry detour through island dancehall after hours, but the rework is a glittery disco marvel. The Magician rakes breathy vocals across vibrant basslines and unrelenting keys, diverging so significantly from AlunaGeorge’s original, that it might be unrecognizable as a remix were it not for his retention of Aluna’s vocal hook.
Released earlier this year, “I’m in Control” is the first single from AlunaGeorge’s forthcoming sophomore LP, I Remember. Slated to arrive this spring, the album will feature production from Flume and Zhu, and is rumored to integrate more live instrumentation than 2013’s Body Music.
