Will Atkinson‘s celebrated single from March is back with a vengeance. The Glasgow, Scotland producer’s original mix made for an exhilarating piece of uplifting trance euphoria, but WAIO has reimagined “Awake” as a dark, gritty psytrance heater.
The soaring synth melody of the source material has been transformed into a treacherous sawtooth in the German producer’s remix. The layered chords from the original still shine through the clouds for a brief stretch of time in WAIO’s version before their reverb-heavy replacements find their way back into the arrangement.
WAIO’s “Awake” remix arrived by way of VII – a label he inaugurated himself with a re-rub of Simon Patterson‘s “Smack.” Most recently, a remix of the latter artist’s 2017 single “Spike” delivered by Israeli psytrance duo Vertical Mode came out on the imprint.
The WAIO remix of “Awake” by Will Atkinson came out on VII August 31st. Find it for digital download on Beatport.
