Saint Saviour "Reasons (Maribou State Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
At this point, Saint Saviour's biggest claim to fame is handling vocal duties on Groove Armada's 2009 single "I Won't Kneel." However, things might be changing rather dramatically in the months ahead, as the UK chanteuse born Becky Jones is about to unveil her debut album, Union. As customarily happens with these kinds of pop-leaning efforts, a slew of remixes has been commissioned, including this dreamy rework from London duo Maribou State. The pair transforms "Reasons" into a swirling, melody-driven number, one in which manipulated bits of Jones' vocals flutter and dance above a chunky, Crosstown Rebels-style bassline and a subtle house rhythm. The track will be released as a digital bonus cut alongside remixes from Ginz, Maxxi Soundsystem, Kissy Sell Out, and others when Union drops on June 25 in Europe and July 24 in the US.
