‘These harmonies transcend time and space, we are excited and grateful to cover such a masterpiece.’
Tale Of Us and Pete Tong’s experience of dance culture and sensitivity in layering execution were crucial in reimagining this epic production by Hans Zimmer. The arrangement has a melodic and deep soundscape, which envelops you like a warm embrace. The bass is warm and elegantly punctuated, the percussion is firmly pushing you into the dancefloor. Light, bright and perfectly suited, the synths are simply magical, much in the style of Tale Of Us and the Balearic isle. The piano notes and strings seem to have been designed to dance to the rhythm of the electronic elements. This precious rendition has kept the cinematic power of Zimmer’s work intact, delicately coating it with exquisite club energy. This driving dance piece is released together with a stunning visualizer featuring scenes from Ibiza’s most iconic and magical locations such as Es Vedra and Dalt Villa.
