We haven't heard Dark Sky as smooth as with “Rainkist” on any of their previous EP releases. The sheer genius of the bassline makes this a gem of a modern soul ballad. It's melodic elegance is gleaming through the track like shining chrome. Hazy falsetto vocals make the song drip of sweat and sex. Both remixers recognize the yearning potential of this beauty of a track but work it very differently.
The Trevino remix adds sci fi synths and electro snares and claps and turns Rainkist into a captivating slow burner perfect for long build ups.
Marcel Dettman's slowly evolving remix pitches the harmonies of the longing vocals to pair them with a pumping sub bass and extends the suspense – packed intro into a pumping techno track that drops at 3:30 and flips it into an absolute dancefloor killer. This is going to be a huge dancefloor hit. Hotly tipped to spearhead the years end polls for best remixes in 2014.
