Lemonade "Lifted (Le Chev Reunion Tour Remix)"
One of the many uncredited Fischerspooner ensemble members, Michael Cheever is Le Chev, and this is his remix of Lemonade's (pictured above) "Lifted," which originally appeared on the band's Pure Moods EP. The song already dripped with bright, syrupy emotion, but this rework commissioned for the recently released single—which also features remixes from Shortstuff, Hackman, Ghosts on Tape, and others—is absolutely soaked in lovelorn poignance. Le Chev's track is a slow-grooving number rooted in many of the ideas pushed by future-boogie producers like Onra and Devonwho. But around the three-minute mark, his version hits a higher level of heartfelt-chest-beating, singing-with-your-eyes-closed, pleading-to-the-unknown-with-every-bit-of-your-soul balladry usually reserved for our favorite R&B classics.
