Exclusive: Birdy – Keeping Your Head Up (Steerner Bootleg)

Steerner is nearing the 100,000 like mark on Facebook every day, and for a good reason. Renowned as one of the industry’s finest underrated members, he also stands as one of progressive house’ immaculate performers.

Having been recognized and promoted by some of the biggest labels and promotion channels in the industry, Steerner often enjoys stepping down and giving back to his ever-supportive fans with a special release in the form of a free download. With the likes of Avicii even using his music, the Swede’s mass appeal is consistently evident in the scene.

With nearly every release on his SoundCloud channel comfortably reaching the 6 figure mark, and sometimes even the magical 7 figure, is resume speaks for itself. With a number of tracks featured on Proximity, releases on Enhanced, Protocol and Spinnin’ have cemented the Stockholm-native as one of house music’s most consistent figures.

Premiering his remix of Birdy’s soulful and infectious “Keep Your Head Up”, Steerner delivers a dance music delight for our auditory palettes. Bringing us nearly 6 minutes of progressive house is always going to go down well, and when it is of this caliber life is made a little more bearable at least. At best immersively satisfying.

As Birdy’s uplifting lyrics and soothing voice top the pulating beat and gentle, pitched, undertones, the atmosphere takes a calm form. That is before Steerner’s signature combination of tempo, empowering melody’s and underlayer’s create a mightily impressive progression. One that demands anticipation and provides an energizing impact.

Adding further reason to why the likes of Tiësto, Sebastian Ingrosso, Nicky Romero, W&W, Sub Focus, Gareth Emery and Galantis have all shown their appreciation to his music, this remix is one We Rave You will certainly be bookmarking for future reference.
