Just when you think you’ve heard everything, an EDM artist repurposes an Enya track from the ’80s as a melodic trap song. Swedish DJ/producer Salvatore may be known for high-energy productions like last year’s “Money in my Mattress” and “Hit It From the Back,” but “Dive” sees him take a distinctly more melancholy approach.
The ambient melody and soothing vocals of Enya’s “Boadicea” from the group’s 1986 album The Celts are largely left untouched in “Dive.” Salvatore’s 808 drum rolls and pitched-up synth work are added on top of it, with Alex Aris’ crisp vocals soaring over all the other production elements.
Before this track, Salvatore had gone the better part of a year without any new releases to show for it. Perhaps now that festival season is under way, though, fans can expect more regularity.
In the meantime, listen to Salvatore‘s “Dive” featuring Enya and Alex Aris and tell us what you think by making a trip down to the comments section below.
