Atmosphere (Naapo Remix) – Kaskade


New house remix from Aussie producer Naapo, who first appeared at Acid Ted back here. It’s a remix of a Kaskade tune but don’t let you put that off. Free download.

I didn’t know the Kaskade original but approached it with some trepidation. Although the first minute or so of the original are ok in a yearning pop song kind of way (despite the vacuous lyrics), once the break comes it’s the usual trashy, light, electro house, happy-clappy, wave-your-hands-in-the-air, everything on the cheese board please, predictable nonsense. Music for cheap hair gel adverts.

As for the Naapo remix he claims “Its a sort of new wave/pop/indie dance/house remix!”. Despite his lack of genre precision, this tune, like last time, is a lovely, upbeat, indie house track. It uses the choppy piano and guitar from the original’s opening and then stops the beats escalating too far. That bit of self-control creates music to make you smile. Almost certainly best heard on a sunny beach. Damn those Australians.

If you really, really feel the need to listen to the original:
