Remixing classics: Only Gray – Love On A Real Train (Tangerine Dream cover) #Synth #Synthwave #Electronic

OK, so this is a cover rather than a remix but it still sits nicely in the Remixing Classics corner. It’s a cover of a Tangerine Dream track Love On A Real Train by Colorado based Only Gray.

Only Gray is from Denver, Colorado. He cites the wonderful Lane8 as an influence and that’s apparent here since the synth cover comes with a deep house and progressive house spin that Lane8 fans would recognise.

Of the track Only Gray says “I can still picture my old VHS copy of Risky Business. The box was tattered and held together with tape. I loved the soundtrack as much as the film, maybe more. This is my cover of the famous Tangerine Dream track, modernized with a progressive house feel.”

That this isn’t a faithful cover is what really lets it fly. The base is Tangerine Dream but totally updated with a smooth progressive house feel and a real lushness. The beats don’t hit you they ripple around and between the synths. A bit of reverb and everything accommodates a bit of pulsing synth bass.

This isn’t a suburban bone shaker of a slam stock train this is top quality comfort on a late night Elizabeth line train.
