The Last Song (Sasha Remixes) by Pale Blue
Sasha heads to Crosstown Rebels for the very first time, with the iconic Last Night On Earth boss remixing, The Last Song, from Pale Blue's excellent 2023 LP Maria.
Released earlier this year, critically acclaimed pairing Pale Blue, aka Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better) and Elizabeth Wight (Silver Hands), once again showcased precisely why their wide-reaching, expansive material and music is so well loved within the electronic realm. Offering an eight-track journey into their own distinctive and singular universe in the form of their latest album, "Maria," the project was also accompanied by a selection of stellar remixes and reworks from the likes of Fort Romeau, DJ Tennis, Perel, Kölsch, and Rebolledo, and Damian Lazarus' renowned Crosstown Rebels imprint once again explores a fresh interpretation to close out its 2023 schedule, welcoming legendary DJ/producer and electronic pioneer Sasha to the label for the first time as he remixes the entrancing "The Last Song."
Buzzing be remixing for Crosstown Rebels. I loved the Pale Blue album when it dropped earlier this year. That spiritual, introspective sound drew me in, and "The Last Song" reminded me a little of the Julee Cruise music from the 90s that graced many an ambient room mix. I have tried to keep the rawness of the original song but also channel some of that 90s hedonistic energy into this mix.
Harnessing Liz's spellbinding vocals and placing them at the heart of the production before weaving slinking percussion grooves, sweeping leads, and resonant synth stabs to craft a dancefloor-ready take on the track, Sasha's remix draws on the original's delicateness while bringing a free-flowing, late-night edge to the production. Add in the hazy and dreamy textures amongst the captivating builds and breaks, and you're left with a remix built to create lasting early-hour memories and moments.
