Movie – ADS (Belarbi Remix) (single) (self-released)
Belarbi is a name you’ll want keep an ear out for over the next 12 months.
Beginning with a remix of Nonono’s Pumpin Blood last year, which has since amassed almost half-a-million plays on Soundcloud, the Parisian producer then remixed Radiohead, Two Door Cinema Club, Yuna (265K+ plays on Soundcloud), and Lykke Li, before French label Kitsuné got on board to release Belarbi’s remix of BeatauCue track Kyllan.
In between remixes, Belarbi also released an original track entitled Paradise, which blended many of the elements and stylings shown in his remix work.
Showing no sign of slowing down, Belarbi’s latest remix is for London band, Movie and the track ADS.
A bass driven remix with a sound and groove most typically found in UK garage, the track is tastefully complimented with sparring instrumentation and backed with a stunning bright and punchy production. Though undoubtedly modern, the production also features many classic house music trademarks, and wastes no time getting down to business.
Imagine a house version of Phoenix and you’d be right on point Belarbi’s remix of ADS. Just check out the falsetto vocal hook in the chorus – absolutely brilliant! Also listen out for the Garage-style vocal cut-ups around 4:30, which offers a slice of old school.
ADS is a more evidence of Belarbi’s rise and rise.
