Bob Marley feat. LVNDSCAPE & Bolier – Is This Love
It’s a monumental achievement having the privilege to not only remix but officially feature in a remake of a track by one of the biggest legends in the history of music. Dutch deep house powerhouses LVNDSCAPE and Bolier have done their magic on the sublime classic by Bob Marley & The Wailer’s “Is This Love.” Rather than remixing the infamous track, the duo are featured on the reggae hit. The result is a gorgeous, catchy and upbeat crossover track that will thrill music lovers of all generations.
One of Bob Marley & The Wailers most well known, and best loved, songs, ‘Is This Love’ was first released in 1978 and now almost four decades later the timeless track is being explored by a new generation. The summery, dancefloor-ready vibe of LVNDSCAPE & Bolier’s production and Marley’s classic vocal is a match made in heaven.
LVNDSCAPE’s productions have attracted a lot of attention since his bootleg version of Ed Sheeran & Rudimental’s ‘Bloodstream’ reached 500,000 SoundCloud plays in less than a month, hitting the #2 spot on Hype Machine. In April, LVNDSCAPE scored his biggest Beatport hit so far with ‘Rise Up’, his remake of the classic alongside the original producer of the track, Yves Larock. Their version reached the #2 position on Beatport.
Bolier has been making waves on the international electronic music scene for several years. ‘Sunshine’, his 2014 collaboration with Dutch duo Redondo, saw him morph his sound into the more organic, pop influenced deep house that has become his signature. Further Redondo collaborations – ‘Every Single Piece‘ and ‘Lost & Found‘ featuring Bitter’s Kiss – and ‘Forever And A Day‘, have seen him continue his rise to fame. His latest single ‘Sweet Love’, released in early April 2016 now has over 3 million combined views on YouTube.
We chatted to the Dutch maestro Bolier about the monumental collaboration and how the exciting project came about:
‘After I met Lvndscape through his remix of Redondo and my track ‘Every Single Piece’ we decided to do a collab which was a track called Ragga in June of last year. Soon afterwards, Spinnin suggested we try and explore the ‘Is This Love’ acapella by Bob Marley. One year later we are glad to see that the track has been officially released. It’s hard to describe the feeling of being officially featured on a track with the legend that is Bob Marley – this goes beyond life goals!’
‘Is This Love’ is already proving to be a huge hit with audiences with over 1.5 million Spotify streams in a matter of days. Order the divine tune right here and press play on the soundtrack of your summer.
