Ukrainian duo ARTBAT continue their excellent remix output with their new rework of Danish genius Kölsch’s collaboration with Troels Abrahamsen, ‘All That Matters’. It follows on from their superb remixes of Monolink’s ‘Return To Oz’ and Royksöpp’s classic ‘What Else Is There?’, collaborations with CamelPhat, Idris Elba and David Guetta and multiple Beatport #1s.
Reworking the track in their sensual style that fuses the gentler side of techno with the experimentalism of electronica, they have been careful to give Abrahamsen’s impassioned vocal plenty of space to breathe within their arrangement. It truly soars in the breakdown, taking centre stage with little else to distract your from its beauty and tense, dramatic build that euphorically explodes at the drop. Triumphant melody arrives to lift your spirits further, and an even more emotive second breakdown gets the goosebumps raised to their fullest.
“When we first heard the record we were blown away by the vocals and lyrics” they say on how the remix came together. “We wanted to give this record our personal touch that comes from our soul and heart. A feeling deep inside, that sets free emotions and gives you a completely new experience of joy. We wanted to combine the emotional deep vocals, with the expressive melody that comes on the drop, making it very uplifting.” – ARTBAT
