Capitalizing on the somber essence of the original, Jan Blomqvist’s remix weaves melodic deep house sensibilities into ‘Roller Coaster’. Mako’s strong original composition remains audibly relevant while Jan Blomqvist transforms the melody into a euphonic and driving soundscape with additional instrumentals. While the original treads on the lines between genres, the remix highlights the scintillating electronic elements as it leads the listener on a sonic roller coaster. The four-minute remix was designed with the dancefloor in mind, as Blomqvist effortlessly captivates with his club-ready cut.
Fable marked a monumental moment for Mako as he revealed his most personal body of work to-date.
