Coming from the depths of glacier caves in Iceland, Maestro makes symphonies with electronic waves. Not only to keep the Ice golums interested but also to warm up the place.Indie Shuffle"So I've heard a few remixes for Passion Pit's "Carried Away," but Maestro's electro infused remix is undoubtedly one of the best ones that I have come across. Maestro is, well... a MAESTRO, har har. Jokes aside, he is a 21-year-old producer from the glacier caves of Iceland, and he only has a few tracks out at the moment. By the looks of things, he has only begun producing and remixing just this year.
So let's talk about this remix, shall we? The Icelander has managed to turn Passion Pit's already positively effervescent song into a electro-funk dance party! Don't be fooled by the mild introduction -- this song explodes into life. I'm loving the way that this Maestro remix has jump-started my day. It's thoroughly upbeat, all while maintaining an unoffensive nature.
Not to put pressure on the guy, but I'm expecting more awesome remixes from him!
"Extremely funk and incredibly unique, Icelandic producer Maestro has woven a vibrant and extremely catchy track that does a brilliant job in capturing the extraordinarily distinct and flavorful culture of his homeland. From swung, heavily danceable synth-lines to soft, crooning vocal stylings, Maestro's "Popo Funk" is undeniably a diamond in the rough that we are beyond ecstaticto have stumbled upon!"
Oh My Rock
"Esse remix de “Settle Down”, da Kimbra, é mais um dos bons frutos que a cantora colheu da sua competição de remix que realizou mês passado. O Maestro não perde tempo e comanda sintetizadores viscerais que deixam a música absolutamente dançantes, picotando ainda os vocais do versão e transformando sua melodia de uma maneira surpreendente e original. Os pianos do final ainda lembram um The Magician mais eletrônico."
