Above & Beyond – Alchemy (Above & Beyond Club Mix and Myon & Shane 54 Redemption Mix)
Posted by Spice on November 19, 2012
Devotees of Above & Beyond, rejoice — the long-awaited club mix for “Alchemy” has finally dropped. “Alchemy” is quite possibly my favorite track on Group Therapy so do yourself a favor and listen to the first few minutes if you’re not familiar with this insanely luminous and beautiful song. The club mix is the version that the trio has used in their live sets for the past several months, so if you’ve been fortunate enough to catch them on tour you will almost certainly recognize it. As in their past club mixes, they’ve layered in a harder bassline and big, shimmering synths but have left the emotional core of the song intact (thank goodness). Included in this package is an extended album cut, so if you’re like me and still can’t get enough of Zoe Johnston’s vocals in the chorus you’ll probably want to add that to your Beatport cart as well.
Also keep an eye out for Myon & Shane 54’s upcoming Redemption Mix (above), which Above & Beyond featured last Friday on ABGT 002 and which is set to drop on December 3. This remix has a dark, trancey vibe that’s a bit more intense than the club mix.
