Lifelike + The Presets is a combination we already know and love. When French Touch luminary Laurent Ash remixed the Australian duo’s 2008 single “This Boy’s In Love,” the result was a supremely funky track that inspired epic dancing in far flung corners of the globe. This time around, producer and French dance music legend Lifelike works his disco magic on the Preset’s latest single, “Promises.”
The original track, which you can stream above via YouTube, is one of the best pieces of 80s-influenced electronica we’ve heard all year. In signature Lifelike style, the rework is a euphoric banger that manages to be intense and melodic at the same time; swirling synths, classic filter house effects, and punchy bass and snare set the stage for some big drops. Once again, the veteran shows he’s still very much on top of his game.
Lifelike’s remix will be included on a Promises Remix EP coming out December 4th via Modular.
