[Exclusive Premiere] Matthew Dear reworks Aly + AJ’s ‘Take Me’

Depending on whom you ask, Matthew Dear is a DJ, a dance-music producer, an experimental pop artist, a bandleader. He co-founded both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. Hes had remixes commissioned by The XX, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Hot Chip, The Postal Service, and Chemical Brothers; hes made mixes for Get Physicals Body Language and Fabric mix series. He maintains four aliases (Audion, False, Jabberjaw, and Matthew Dear), each with its own style and distinct visual identity. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none and hes just hitting his stride.

He arrives today with a slow-building re-work of Aly & AJ's track, “Take Me”. A sparse and glitchy re-thinking of the 80's tinged original, Matthew Dear has stripped backed the sugary synths to leave nothing but booming 808 drums and delicate vocals. The finished product is a glitchy and ethereal anthem with just the right amount of bass.

Aly & AJ told EDMSauce over email, “The fact that Matthew Dear was interested in tackling a remix of “Take Me” spoke volumes since we’re such fans of his work. All of the abstract and ambient sounds he combined while preserving the structure of the song, make this such a great companion to the original.”

Matthew Dear's remix of “Take Me” will be available via DSPs on 10/27, but you get to check it out on EDM Sauce 24 hours early, ENJOY!
