It takes finesse to improve upon a track released by English trance mainstay Gareth Emery, but Standerwick might have managed to do exactly that. The Bristol-based DJ/producer has released a remix of Emery’s “Reckless” that ought to resonate more with pure trance enthusiasts than what was featured on the original.
A subtle synth melody ushers in an anthemic cut of Wayward Daughter’s original top line at the beginning of Standerwick’s remix. Then, a soaring progression of synth plucks builds up to a euphoric crescendo after several measures, keeping to the faster rhythms characteristic of more classic styles of trance.
Along with “Hands,” the original version of “Reckless” will be available as a free gift to anyone who pre-orders Emery’s third studio album, 100 Reasons to Live. The effort’s official release date is April 1st, and it will come out through Emery’s own Garuda imprint.
