We’ve been listening to phenomenal music this week. Coldplay’s new album, Ghost Stories, hit the store on May 19th. When we were scoping out Moby’s latest release, Almost Home, we discovered that the same DJ/Producer, Sebastien remixed that record and this one too! Of course, we had to just jump on the Sebastien bandwagon and get this one onto the blog as well. Okay…so we’re a little late to the game on this Sebastien dude. He seems to be scoring a few points with choice artists who make incredible music. Could Sebastien be the next Calvin Harris? It looks like he’s working his way down that road, for sure.
Here’s the original official Coldplay video for single, “Magic.” The song is about a love somehow broken. By whom it doesn’t say, but the memories of that love still persist and while the relationship fades from view, it was still like magic, even if it’s now no longer together.
Here is the Sebastien remix of Coldplay “Magic” we discovered on SoundCloud. He gives this record a nice bottom end deep house flavor with simple piano chords throughout that keep this song grounded near the original. Simple, emotive and effective.
Not sure yet where to buy this remix as the download has yet to make itself available. Hopefully, we’ll see it soon.
If you’re looking for more of an electronic dance music remix, the legendary Giorgio Moroder gives this one a spin as well. You can hear the difference in the more polished sound of the experienced dance music veteran in the complex synth and drum patterns. This is available now for download through iTunes.
