“I have never loved anyone like you…it’s time I do”

The high priestess of all things smoky, jazzy and provocative continues her love affair with the dancefloor and those more intimate spaces with the release of “HEART OF WAX (THE REMIXES)” PT. I. Issued just in time for Valentine’s Day and hot on the heels of her fiery single “CONSEQUENCES (THE REMIXES)”, the single is destined to become an essential home listening companion for those long winter nights (or the theme song for your next great love affair).

The hauntingly tender and romantic elegy has been cleverly reinvented into a radiant, soul-stirring late night anthem featuring mixes from ALPHAMOTIVE (aka multi-talented producer/composer/remixer WILL THOMAS of DIVE INDEX and PLUMBLINE) and classically trained, Danish producer/musicianCHRISTIAN RØNN (aka GANGA). It is the second offering from VANESSA DAOU’s series of inspired reworks lifted from her acclaimed 2008 album JOE SENT ME and leads up to the release of her forthcoming MOONSHINE MIXES remix album project (scheduled for Fall 2011).

ALPHAMOTIVE transforms the plaintive and soothing ballad into a soaring heartfelt mantra where Vanessa’s breathy delicate vocals and bewitching melodies become bathed in swirling electronic flourishes, warm synth washes and thumping drum pulses creating a scintillating and narcotic, deep progressive-fuelled groove perfectly suited for sweaty late night workouts – when the “peak hour” crowd begins to clear and the after-hours crowd arrives.

GANGA counters with a lush dreamscape punctuated with his signature blend of chilled-out, spacious grooves, muted acoustic instrumentation, aquatic dub-drenched beats, supple atmospherics and sensual vocals. Harnessing the dusky romance of the original, Ganga’s mix masterfully tugs at your soul drawing listeners into its enveloping embrace. Combining Balearic eclecticism, Dub and Scandinavian melancholy, he creates the perfect backdrop for Daou’s passionately poetic tale of love and longing that pulsates and teases with a seductive pace and transcendent intensity.
