In my personal producer’s Pantheon, Armond Arabshahi aka Unlike Pluto holds a prestigious spot amongst those who influenced me the most during my path of growth. As the first ‘unofficial’ superstar I’ve discovered on my own surfing on Soundcloud, for me he’s the living example of what the hard work and the power of Web can do when combined skilfully, and still a fresh source of inspiration for my projects.
Achieved in the last months a couple of planetary hits with his own ‘Palace’ and his ‘Revolution’s remix, he recently back in the studio for an intensive remix session, whose efforts have given birth to another absolute masterpiece. I don’t know if there’s a particular alchemy between Unlike Pluto and Mad Decent, but each time this two worlds get in touch, we can be sure that something magical will happen.
Coincidences? I definitely don’t think so.
If you thought too that Bombox Cartel had done the best job possible, here you had the proof that we all were wrong because Pluto’s version exceeds in elegance and originality all other competitors I’ve listened before (and even the original version). It’s incredible to hear how each every part of his remix beautifully fits with the others, contributing to create a complex result very close to perfection. I honestly don’t really know where to start to describe in detail all the qualities of this wonder: from the amazing juxtaposition between ‘real’ and ‘digital’ instruments and sounds? From the catchy summer melody? From the jazzy and funky atmosphere?
Well, sometimes it’s too hard to explain music in mere words, so lets stop babbling and simply give the music its deserved space. Enjoy the listening
