After the astronomical success of ‘After Midnight’, French duo KLYMVX return with the stunning ‘After Midnight’ Remixes EP. With five totally new reimagining’s of the beautiful original and an instrumental version to-boot, the ‘After Midnight’ remix EP is out now on Ultra and Sony, and is available to purchase via all digital service providers.
Starting out with a delicate piano melody and soft vocal detailing, the original ‘After Midnight’ sets out to immediately capture the listeners’ attention. Synth stabs ramp up the energy as Emily Zeck’s country-esquetop line builds up until a huge, orchestral horn section enters the soundscape. With a steady tropical house beat and a poppy vocal hook, ‘After Midnight’ has already captured the hearts and minds of the public.
Accompanying the original and an instrumental version of the track are 5 unique remixes, each appropriately assigned to an hour of the day. The ‘9am’ remix indicates a more melodic and downbeat cut, with epic strings to supercharge any morning wake-up routine. As the midday sun of ’12pm’ comes around, snare rolls and surging, distorted, broken vocals couple with huge chord stabs that bring a revitalised energy. By the time we reach ‘8pm’ the track is significantly faster and armed with a brand new melody, designed for festival and club sets. The ’10pm’ rework surges with a broken energy and classic machine driven percussion, rolling into the evening hours with a 4/4, club-ready beat. Closing off the package is the ‘2am’ mix, a peak-time floor filler, with a subtle piano-led breakdown and detuned vocals exploding into a wall of sound.
