Today's one of these days when I have damn good reason to love my job.
Super honored & thrilled to be able to release on Stereofox Records with one of the legends we've been following & supporting for years - Dutch producer Moods (check our interview with him). He reworked our dear Bulgarian talents Lina Nikol & Boyan's "Set You Free", featuring the amazing guitarist Ashton Sellars, turning a warm neo-soul piece into an instant summer anthem.
It might as a bit of a surprise to all of you who are fans of Nick who's usually taking a more jazz/soul approach - but the bossa-nova/lounge touch here is simply amazing.
"When I just started on the remix for “Set You Free” I wasn’t sure where to go with it. The original feels right and I would not want to recreate that in some other way that serves the same purpose. So I started wondering how it would sound if I gave it more of a Bossa twist. Something fresh & different with a summery feel. I’ve been listening to a lot of Brazilian records from the ’70s/early ’80s lately so using elements from that as inspiration made sense for this. It was a joy working on this one,“ Moods elaborated.

Next one up is another remix titan - El Train, who did a makeover of "Just You And Me" (due July 26th). And the full A Mood Called "You" Remixes is out Aug 16th - stay tuned for the other names.
