More sets by Mario & Vidis (7)
Future Classic have gone back to their deep house roots with 'Changed' by Mario & Vidis. They've also invited their friends Andre Lodemann, John Talabot, Soul Clap, jozif and Softwar to grab their pianos, drum machines and string ensembles for remixes.
Mario and Vidis are two gentlemen from Lithuania. Mario and Vidis' first tune was a remix for Atjazz and Robert Owens that was played and loved by Gilles Peterson, Pete Tong and Laurent Garnier, their first track with vocals “I'll Be Gone” didn't leave the MTV Baltic Top 20 for half a year! Since then they've worked with Jazzu, Kathy Diamond and released their debut album on their own label Silence Music. (Lithuania geographically parties next to Latvia, Belarus, Poland and the Baltic Sea.)
'Changed' is etherial – the whispy voice of Ernesto and cute skipping drums just make us happy. The video clip kind of wigs us out a little bit too (double meaning).
First remixer up is German producer Andre Lodemann, not many house producers would admit they came from trance and we're surprised we're even telling you. Lodemann's mix is a weapon, if you're listening to a little sample clip on the net you're not doing it justice, listen to the first 4:30! Phoar.
Permanent Vacation regular John Talabot pitch shifts the vocals and blisses everything out with celestial strings and ecstasy whilst burning hot producer and DJ team Soul Clap throw down a tough drum mix for the floor. Sydney lads and new Future Classic signee's Softwar work out a classic house jam and rounding out the package jozif of Wolf + Lamb fame gives a more live feel to the original.
