Swedish DJ/production trio Moodshift’s sophomore sonic offering ‘What About My Love’ is making a return to the release radar with a 2-track remix pack. The new EP features a driving reinterpretation from the U.K.’s former BBC Radio 1 personality MistaJam, in addition to a rework from established Stockholm-based talent Tobtok. Out now, the 2-track ‘What About My Love’ remix EP is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
MistaJam’s rendition of the tune immediately begins with a Balearic-esque beat, quickly accompanied by a propulsively driving rhythm and textured vocal cut. A rising tension is steadily built throughout the beginning half, and is eventually unleashed in full force with a hefty bass drop, various instrumentation, and a palpable sense of sonic wonder. The deep house sensibilities present in the source material are kept much in place, but with a tinge of much-needed piano house added for flair.
Audibly taking things in a slightly different direction, Tobtok’s remix kicks off with a more subdued, mellow tone. The piano is also prominently featured here as well, alongside an energetically propelling four-on-the-floor beat. The three-minute musical endeavor finishes with a hard-hitting punch, featuring the saxophone, a soaring vocal, and larger-than-life, feelgood deep house production elements.
MistaJam is a highly-esteemed U.K. DJ who spent the last fifteen years as one of BBC Radio 1’s most-listened-to radio host personalities. His long standing program, ‘Dance Anthems’, marked a pivotal point in his career and opened many doors for the DJ/producer. Over time, he’s won five Radio Academy Awards and has springboarded the careers of some of the biggest names in electronic dance music to-date. He continues to release his unique signature sound via his very own imprints, Speakerbox and Dance NRG. His remix of Moodshift’s latest single directly follows him and NYC-based artist Dean Mickoski’s single ‘Afro Moon’, released in mid-December of last year.
Tobtok is an established creative force who’s been consistently releasing his own brand of electronic dance music for a decade. Since emerging onto the scene, he’s impressively garnered over 100 million streams via Spotify, and has released on venerated labels such as the New York-based Astralwerks imprint, the U.K.’s Perfect Havoc, and Armin van Buuren’s Armada Music. His rework of ‘What About My Love’ follows he, Milwin, and Alfie Cridland’s late October-released track ‘New Levels’ featuring Mila Falls.
Continuing their sharp trajectory into 2021, Moodshift continues to dominate the electronic dance music landscape with their infectiously progressive sound. Those wishing to hear more from the innovative triumvirate can tune into their Moodshift Monday Mix series each week, and can also look forward to more hits like ‘What About My Love’ moving forward into the new year.
