Following on from his compulsive ‘Babel’ EP, DJ Angelo is back with a brooding release featuring vocals from Jaidene Veda and a standout remix from Pablo Fierro.
Greece’s DJ Angelo has built an enviable career over the last decade, drawing on his long held passion for house music he has gone from local resident to internationally recognised DJ and producer with releases on label likes Saved, Rise, Armada and of course connected. Now he’s back with perhaps his strongest offering to date in the form of ‘Surrender’ featuring the distinctive tones of Canadian vocalist Jaidene Veda.
The original version kicks off like a hazy summer morning as synth pads and tubular bells drift across a minimal rhythm section. Jaidene’s vocal oozes soulful warmth and heartfelt humanity as she provides the topline to this intricate tapestry of musical elements. The remix see Spain’s Pablo Fierro step up to deliver a spacious and atmospheric reworking built around murky, twisting bass, vibrating chord arms and of course Jaidene’s mesmerising vocal.
This is another sterling release from the connected label and the excellent DJ Angelo.
