LICK has dropped his remix of the Seven Lions track Lose Myself featuring Lynn Gunn. With remixes for artists such as Wolfgang Gartner, Skrillex, and Virtual Self, LICK has proven that he is fearless and continues to be one of the recent breakout artists who has exponentially gotten better with each release. I always tense up when I see someone remix Seven Lions for in my personal opinion you do not mess with perfection, however, there is the rare remix that will find its way into my heart; such as Trivecta’s remix of Without You My Love, or the Last Heroes remix of Dreaming. I can easily move LICK’s take on Lose Myself right to the top of that list.
LICK is a curator of dark music so for him to choose Loose Myself came as a bit of a surprise to me. I would have assumed with LICK’s dark tendencies he would lean toward the Serpents of Old side of the Seven Lions spectrum. The remix begins with a weighed down intro to the song via a rumbling low-end bass overlay. The added percussion takes the song from the fantasy world that it was and gives it a slight edge. The classic Seven Lions arpeggios rush you to the ever so crucial first drop. It was here that LICK had the restraint from using a very popular oversaturated power-sludge type of drop and comes with darker but cleaner rumbling bass. It’s almost as if he sliced the bass from the original drop and poured out the dark stuff inside. The slowed pace allows for an easy transition back to the opening melody. In contrast to the first drop, the second time around LICK creates a fantastic melodic dubstep drop that contains just the right amount of grand size mixed with some well-designed glitches and sounds. Listen to this impressive edit for yourself below.
