One Australian powerhouse has done some heavy lifting on the work of another Aussie powerhouse for this groove-fueled remix. The initial artist in question is, of course, the dance pop master Kilter. But it’s the second artist, LO’99, that’s the focus here. With his adept skill at weaving misty low-end house thumpers, he’s crafted a driving and upbeat take on the soul-drenched hit “I Hear You.”
While the original version is not lacking beats, LO’99 goes straight in here, laying down a solid four-on-the-floor foundation that just won’t quit. The spirit and style stays true, while the dynamic is reined in enough to allow the remix’s rhythmic grooves to move steadily. A deep house bass with bassline flair rounds out the soundscape, which has a body-moving swing. The final product seamlessly melds the best of both worlds: The epic and emotive pop styling of the original shines through an outfit of deep, late-night, sweat-dripping house.
“Ned’s (Kilter’s) OG is such solid tune. There are so many dope parts, and it’s like a sort of radio anthem here now,” LO told Insomniac. “I wanted to make sure I didn’t stray too far from the main hooks or vibe, so I did up a solid four-to-the-floor mix with my favourite main bits—something for myself and everyone to be able drop on dancefloors, too. Hope you dig!”
