Since premiering her music video for the song “Lock and Key” on these pages back in December 2014, Amana Melome released her EP of the same name in 2015 and now 2016 sees the singer dropping a remix EP to keep the vibes flowing. And flow they do on the lead single, a remix of “Lock and Key” by one of our favorite’s Mark de Clive-Lowe, which SoulBounce is more than happy to world premiere here today.
Mark de Clive-Lowe’s soulful house remix will transport you straight to the nearest dance floor — or have you creating one wherever you are. His additions to the song are a masterclass in house remixes. Clive-Lowe increases the pace, changes the rhythm and adds layers of synths, piano and percussion, which immediately sets the tone once you press play. Amana Melome’s vocals flow so naturally on Mark de Clive-Lowe’s remix that you’d think this was the original song, but the extended instrumental sections belie that thought and completely enhance the production.
With the remaining remixes on Lock & Key: The Remixes being just as tight as this one, do yourself the favor and add this EP to your collection right now. In addition to Mark de Clive-Lowe, producers Filip, Slimbo, Firefly, Daz-I-Kue and Opolopo got their hands on Amana’s tracks and put their own signature spins on them.
