Ánders - I Wish (Ercy Mirage Remix)
Ercy Mirage presents his remix of Ánders - "I Wish"
This remix is a chill and danceable take on Ánders "I Wish." The original track is very minimal with some airy delayed electric guitar, a spacey keyboard track, minimal bass and drums and a flawless vocal. The vocal becomes the star in Ercy Mirage's remix. Keeping the chill and emotion feel of the original, the Ercy Mirage mix is still soulful, relaxing and deep but with more of a backbone. A solid four-on-the-floor drumbeat keeps the track moving, whereas Ánders original track ebbs and flows. The structure of the remix emulates the original with a breakdown toward the end, but the rhythmic elements keep the tempo going even on the outro. The only thing that I could complain about is that the chorus line "I wish you were mine" feels a bit over sampled. Overall, this remix gives the original a run for its money. The two tracks would fit in totally different head spaces: the original, more introspective and thoughtful, the remix, more extroverted and upbeat. Either way, when a remix is able to capture the original soul of a song and channel it in a way that is just as good as or possibly even better than the original, then you have a real successful re-imagining.
