Faithless have tasked Maceo Plex to remix their acclaimed single ‘Synthesizer’ (featuring Nathan Ball), out now on BMG.
With his remix of ‘Synthesizer’, Maceo Plex layers poignant, heartfelt piano chords with glitchy robotic synths and punchy kicks alongside Nathan Ball’s stirring vocal. This builds to an electrifying, euphoric crescendo which makes the listener yearn for dimly-lit dance-floors, punctuated by explosive lasers. Maceo Plex then strips everything back to reveal a hypnotic bassline lurking underneath.
‘Synthesizer’ is the first single to be taken from the eagerly awaited Faithless album ‘All Blessed’ – their first new LP in 10 years, released on BMG on 23 October.
On his recent of Faithless ‘Synthesizer’ Maceo Plex said: “At first listen, I was not too sure how to approach the remix. But when I heard the piano in the breakdown, it suddenly became clear that I need to base the entire track around this beautiful piano line. The rest was built on those piano chords and adding the vocals pretty late in the process. It was a lot of fun, and of course, it was an honour to be part of their new single.”
