It's surprising when an artist like CID isn't yet an international superstar. The New York DJ and producer has won a Grammy, and been a go-to collaborator for artists like Kaskade. He closed out 2015 with an original demonstrating his ownership of his underground, disco-infused house style entitled "Like This," and the just as deep, but more radio friendly "Love Is Blind." Just earlier this week, he released the music video for"Love Is Blind," and before we could even blink, we're getting the full package surrounding the single, visuals, remixes and all.
Due out on February 12th via Big Beat Records, the Love Is Blind remix EP includes an array of reinterpretations of the single. The first, from Swedish electro soul producer Sebjak, takes "Love Is Blind" into an after hours set through subtlety in its vocal sampling and the use of darker, eerier synths. Broadening the spectrum of appeal of the track even more is UK producer LuQus's remix, bringing a chilled out, futuristic new tempo on board. Lastly, the EP will feature work from Attom and Oracles, whose international collaboration (by way of Minnesota and South Africa), has allowed them to take a new perspective on an original progressive take on the track. CID himself has expressed excitement on the varying directions his original has taken:
“I’m really excited for everyone to hear these Love Is Blind remixes. I’ve got Sebjak, this guy LuQus from London, and Attom & Oracles, who all delivered something new and fresh to the song.”
Check all three remixes out below ahead of their release tomorrow.
