When you think about Above & Beyond, you don’t immediately think shades of bass, right? That’s actually what makes a good remix good — taking a well-known song and flipping it 180 degrees into something exciting and new. It’s about seeing a song in a whole new way, and SLANDER did just that with A&B’s Zoë Johnston collaboration “Always.”
The cascading beauty and soft soul is still there. It opens with Johnston’s whisper in a magical hush, but it soon works itself up to a clamor. There’s a touch of future bass in its half-time beat. It’s certainly a sweet mix of sweet and spicy.
This remix of “Always” is out everywhere via Anjunabeats on Friday, but you can listen to it below exclusively on Billboard Dance.
