Not to be outdone by the barrage of spot-on remixes Radiohead has graced us with over the summer, Metronomy is set to release their third remix EP in support of Because Music's The English Riviera. After setting a steep standard with Fred Falke handling remix duties on The Look and Erol Alkan and 2 Bears on The Bay, maintaining that kind of quality is no easy task, but Metronomy managed to deliver in lining up two of todays most sought after producers, Ewan Pearson and Jesse Rose.
While staying relevant over a 15 year production career is a task upon itself, Ewan Pearson has gone one step further with a wildly successful 2011. Some highlights include a remix out on arguably the label of the year Crosstown Rebels, as well as not only finding his way onto an EP by Boys Noize and Erol Alkan but for my money overshadowing the hugely buzzed about Canblaster remix.
Metronomy and Ewan Pearson have been ever so generous as to provide our faithful readers with an exclusive download of Everything Goes My Way. After making its debut on Annie Mac's show September 30th, there's been a flood of radio rips hitting the internet, alas here's an exclusive premiere available for download.
In Ewan's vocal version he manages to straddle the often difficult line of adding his own sound yet maintaining the feel of the original. He opts for a more electronic drum kit that paves way into what could best be described as acid for the Hamptons. Dark yet tastefully refined it conjures images of a moonlit crab bake on the beach with KiNK dj'ing.
Look for the EP to be released on Because Music November 7th via iTunes with an additional dub version by Ewan, my personal favorite, a tech house jam by the aforementioned Jesse Rose, and a synth pop take by Psychemagik. If you go dig through Jesse Rose's Soundcloud page there's also a great dub that he teamed up with Duke Dumont on that I highly recommend checking out.
