The first time I heard COMBAT!'s remix of "Fever Dream" by Double Wish, I had this urge to running to my girlfriend (Annie, hi), grab her without any explanation, start the car and start driving to the seaside. The track is full of energy and nothing, but good vibes.
Spacious and groovy electronica, full of tiny lush sounds which eventually belts out to a beautiful dance anthem. Upon working on this remix, Mark Nieto (COMBAT!) was drawn to the vocals and lyrics of "Fever Dream". After listening to the isolated vocal tracks the remix came together by way of building up different layers of percussion. Nieto wants the listener to be propelled through the track - to start in one place and end in another. Adam Sabolick (Double Wish) and Mark Nieto have been musical acquaintances for over a decade. This remix is the artist's first collaboration, and I really hope not the last one.
If you like the psychedelic feel of Tame Impala with the upbeat vibe of Jungle... sprinkled with some electronica - then you have found home.
