This variant is currently sold out
Following the rich vein of melodic, star-gazing sonic form set by his previous single - the blistering n beautiful Love Again The Journey is yet another highlight from his Mixmag acclaimed album highlight Light Speed. Opening with the trembling, angels-from-heaven style intro, its an instant flashback to the heady days of Sasha & Digweed at their prime; delicate, enrapturing, dreamy, euphoric. A perfect set opener, a perfect set finale, a perfect moment for deep, shivering reflection mid-set Its an instant ear-catcher, whenever you drop it.
As the intro develops, were snapped away from our progressive reverie and slammed into the future with Johns robust beats, trademark crisp electro bassline and floating synth work. By the time Swedish artist Code 64s perfect vocal delivery enters the mix all watches in a five mile radius are automatically set to rush o clock. Executing an impeccable balance between dancefloor power and genuine song-writing, its yet another reason why John B is respected as such a unique artist. Not just in drum & bass, but the wider world of electronic music.
Remix-wise youre in for a treat as Beta have invited the unstoppable Metrik to the fold for a very special remix! A firm fave at the Hospital camp, Metrik is unavoidable right now. Leading the charge of D&Bs next generation with an ability to fuse raw production power with the subtleties of melody and vocal dynamics, hes the perfect remix candidate for The Journey. Paying respect to Johns original, Metriks given the bass a major beef boost, tweaked the arrangement with his own space-bound arpeggios and bolstered the beats. Where Johns original was a moment of dancefloor reflection, Metriks version is a moment of dancefloor detonation.
Complete with an acoustic version and all manner of instrumentals and radio edits, theres an ideal solution for every platform, every club, every time of the night. Remember
Its all about the journey. Any DJ who tells you otherwise is living a lie.
