Revolver "Birds in Dm (Joakim Remix)"
From the oft-reliable Astralwerks stable of artists, Parisian chamber-pop trio Revolver (pictured above) recently gave fellow Frenchman Joakim a go at its vocal-heavy, sullen number, "Birds in Dm." While still focused around lead vocalist Ambroise Willaume and his backup singers, the producer transforms the band's even-keeled, acoustic song into an epic electronic dance tune that builds slowly and confidently into an overwhelming sonic experience. And even though Joakim's remix—which will be released on a limited 7" next month—is heavy with rhythm, it's his composition of thickly layered melodies and gradual introduction of chaotic noise elements that take the song over, turning it into some kind of i-Dose before it becomes a moody dance track again.
