Rainer + Grimm collide with Jessie Ware on their new remix of a deep cut off the British chanteuse's Tough Love LP. The album was one of the best of 2014 and has received remix treatment from notables Cyril Hahn, Alex Adair, and TOKiMONSTA among others. Rainer + Grimm, on the other hand, exploded onto the scene last year with their remix of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" which made its way onto pop radio. The Toronto-based production duo also did remix duties on tracks by Years & Years, Zhu and Majid Jordan in the past year. Their take on Jessie Ware's "Desire" is predictable, but that's a good thing; the duo puts their signature touch on the track by keeping the focus on Jessie Ware's stellar vocals, adding flourishes of synth melodies and deep bass as they go. They bring Ware to the dancefloor but in a way that listeners can recognize her while enjoying their added production. The resulting track is something Rainer + Grimm should be proud of.
