Premiere: Hear Agoria Remix Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons’ “Vermillion”
Stream the French producer's rework of the glistening original.
“Vermillion” is the lead single off the forthcoming album by Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons, Message From the Other Side. The album is said to be inspired by a career spent DJing across the globe and the famous sunrise parties the pioneering artist is known for. Channelling those sunrise sets and the globetrotting influence of Message From the Other Side, “Vermillion” will be released with a huge remix package, seeing reworks from some of the house scene’s biggest names including Agoria, Jamie Jones and Deniz Kurtel.
In his remix, Agoria focuses heavily on the vocals, propping them up with a deep, minimal inclined, backbone. The track throbs and grows in waves throughout it’s six and a half minute runtime and crescendos with soaring, bass heavy, synths. “I’m doing very few remixes at the moment, but when Damian sent me “Vermillion” just before christmas I immediately fell in love with the vocals,” Agoria says. “I had no other choice but to cut my holiday short to make this remix. We exchanged a few tracks and ideas in the past but the timing never fit. I’m happy that we finally found the time to collaborate with each other.”
The “Vermillion” single and remix package will see release April 27 via Crosstown Rebels, with the full album landing May 18. You can pre-order Message From the Other Sidehere, with a full stream of the Agoria remix of “Vermillion” below.
