Teaming up with Modular/DFA records, The Rapture’s 2011 album In The Grace Of Your Love hit a serious home run. At the time, it seemed just about everyone was basking in the energetic, passionate vocal rays belting from the depths of frontman Luke Jenner. Upon hearing the full album, my initial excitement (after I got over the ecstasy of the album itself) was all the amazing remixes to come.
Clearly, I am no psychic because there were only a handful of remixes of album single “How Deep Is Your Love,” most missing the epic remix bar in my opinion. I had all but given up on this front, until DFA slapped some stellar remixes on their Soundcloud page about two weeks ago.
Drawing from some of electronic music’s star talent, Cut Copy, Aeroplane, and Cosmic Kids took the single and each offered their interpretations of In The Grace Of Your Love‘s opening track, “Sail Away.” Electronic track masters Cut Copy’s remix is my favorite, a blazing synth-pop progression of euphoric vocal loops speckled with keyboards, sparkly synths, and palpable dance magic.
Hopefully this is an indicator that DFA will be releasing other remixes as the year progresses. To listen to Aeroplane and Cosmic Kids’ remixes as well, check out DFA’s Soundcloud page here.
