There’s something magical about this rework of “Creation.” Seven Lions‘ original soundscape features vocals from Vök over dream-sequence synth lines, lush builds and drops that drip with grime. It got a few facelifts at the hands of a variety of artists for the upcoming remix package, out Friday, but we can’t help but be drawn to the mystical quality Anjunabeats’ Jason Ross brings to the table.
He tones the melody down, switching focus to drums that sound as if they’ve been ripped from some kind of hallucinatory rainforest. The build brightens the track until the anticipation hits critical mass, then drops into heavenly relief, as if the sun just came shining through the clouds.
It’s pretty dope, actually, and it’s only one of seven on the EP. Hey — seven remixes, Seven Lions, think they did that on purpose? Either way, listen for the tune in any of its eight wonderful forms when Seven Lions hits the road on his The Journey tour.
