Jonathan Meyer & Anna Cavazos – Can’t Hold Back (Voyeur Remix)

13.06.12,

Remix is a tricky business. If you consider looping the vocals, adding extra drum patterns, or simply speeding up the tempo of a track a remix; it may work as a ‘danceable’, soulless alternative version, but then, you’re missing the point of remix. The greatest remixes often happen to be those that depart markedly from the original, which is something Voyeur do best. Hailing from Leeds, the duo have debuted their first release with their re-interpretation of Bombay Bicycle Club’s How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep earlier this year. It’s an re-imagining so wistful and delicate it leaves you aching for more. Now, they have done another remix of Jonathan Meyer and Anna Cavazos’ Can’t Hold Back, streamable below. Voyeur’s bass-driven approach, which resonance flirts with the lilting and shuffling beat, lays down a nod-your-head groove with teasing pitched-down vocal snippets, scattered keyboard chords as well as sustained percussive pads, which allows the snippets of the main mix to play out gracefully. If you’d like to enjoy something incredible, yet somewhat mellow and laidback, click the ‘play’ button right away.
