NONONO – Masterpiece (Vargas & Lagola Remix)
Salam Al Fakir and Vincent Pontare have quite the resumes where modern pop music is concerned. With a who’s who of pop co-writes and more recent cuts for Avicii and Axwell Ingrosso, the Swedish duo take a second from their primary calling to return as experimental pop protagonists Vargas & Lagola. We last heard from the act courtesy of “As Long As I Had To,” which was quite the electronic pop romp. On remix duties for “Masterpiece,” the duo acts as an essential breath of air for a reggae-inspired refix of the safe and somewhat forgettable original. Vargas & Lagola have an amazing function – they write surefire hits for other people and keep the world guessing with their own original material, making them something on an unparalleled force out of the Noridcs right now.
