Following its initial release in 2013 and its round of high-profile advert placements, FCL ‘It’s You’ is proving to be one of those tracks that just keep coming back better. Featuring remixes by the likes of Mousse T., Hercules & Love Affair and Nick Holder, this Defected remix package is sure to send ‘It’s You’ down the road to becoming a classic.
With a wall-scratching kick and rattling shakers, first on the list is Mousse T.’s Teef Vocal Mix, which moves with its minimal bass line and striking piano melody. Next up, Mousse T.’s Discotronic Mix drops the disco ball by introducing a groovy bass guitar riff and uplifting synth stabs. Nick Holder’s Trackheadz Mix sets the irrepressible vocal over a rolling, sub-heavy house groove, with eerie chords and orchestral strings exquisitely playing off one another as the track progresses. Finally, Hercules & Love Affair Remix creates an intricate rhythm medley using pitched high hats and vanishing synth breaks against a futuristic guitar lick and cosmic arpeggios. With such a diverse and well-crafted selection of remixes, each track preserves the irresistible draw of the original while steering into its own unique sonic direction.
