It's been almost exactly a year since Swedish producer Manse released his dreamy progressive work "Freeze Time" with Alice Berg. The track marked Manse's first solo debut on Revealed Recordings and garnered support from dance music heavyweights Hardwell and landed a feature on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 SHOW. The track has since the been flipped by several artists in house to trap reworks. Progressive House is a genre often hard to rework, as it's sound usually follows a standardized breakdown and outline. In WE5's latest, he revamps the track and paints a shimmering aesthetic over the track to bring it into different dimensions.

Producer WE5 calls Hong Kong his home and has an affinity for adding his own touch to several progressive house classics including 3LAU's "How You Love Me" and Hardwell's "Mad World". In his sound, he deconstructs tracks to create for a sound design that brightens with shiny synths and glowing undertones. His remix of Manse's "Freeze Time" is an exuberant reconstruction with it's quickened pace and addition of layered piano melodies. WE5 adds a subtle future bass flair in the remix's vocal serrations to create for dreamy flow. In the track's breakdown it becomes a moment of bliss with subdued peculiarities such as bird chirping and an audial jumble of fluidity. The remix showcases WE5's ability to inject a signature sound into substantial electronic tracks heavily on rotation in the scene.
