Following the announcement that Anthony Gonzalez will be composer and musical director for Cirque du Soleil’s new show “Volta,” M83 has released a 4-track remix EP of dream-pop single Road Blaster.
The EP features electronic artists and producers, including: MAPS – the recording moniker of James Chapman, member of noir-pop duo and Mute labelmates On Dead Waves – turns in an atmospheric version, transforming the original into a gauzy haze. Austrian producer MOUNT brings a youthful house strut and dovetails enigmatic chords with the giddy nostalgia of the original. Lauer’s remix, a euphoric proto-house bomb, showcases the veteran Frankfurt producer’s devastating way with a synth arpeggiator. Rounding things off is fellow Frenchman Lee Van Dowski’s techno remix of “By The Kiss” (taken from Digital Shades Vol. I).
