Flume feat. Kai – Never Be Like You (Martin Solveig Remix)
A now dominating radio takeover, Flume’s “Never Be Like You” has topped Soundcloud and now Billboard’s charts ever since its release back in January of this year. A single off his newest studio album, Skin, Flume’s ability to generate listeners comes from his seamless knowledge of blending each vocal with his sporaduc BPM range. Between Disclosure, A.T., and Nolan van Lith taking stabs at the song’s already dominate foundation, it seems no one can go wrong when deciding to remix this mega hit.
Newest to the train however, French producer, Martin Solveig. With his distinctive beat progressions that seems to carry the song throughout its entirety, Solveig did a fantastic job allowing the lyrics to still follow the tune but not be overshadowed by its club vibed undertones. With a minute intro that leads to Solveig’s midtempo synth work, this remix is not only captivating, but takes a road less traveled that is sure to shake any expectation this modernized hit is able to reach. From start to finish, the over four minute record reinvents the song’s sultriness, and adds a more heightened, animated take the veteran has yet to explore. An overall beautifully executed remix, Solveig’s “Never Be Like You” truthfully sticks out from the rest.
Host of the worldwide radio station, C’est La Vie, Solveig has steadily been on the scene since 2002. Delivering hit after hit with his Electro-house vibes, the European mastermind never stears from his rooted path of synth-pop and noteworthy production techniques. Having worked alongside artists like Dragonette and even Madonna, the now 39 year old has surpassed boundaries, including the opening of his own record label, Mixture Stereophonic. Ranking among DJ Mags top producers of the year, Solveig came in at number 29 during the 2011 nomination, which only further solidifies his perminate spot among the industry’s most influential creators.
