This October, Black Hole Recordings introduced a new vocal name to the electronic music domain. The man behind the Lyonheart mask is by no means though a singing/songwriting tenderfoot. Over the last half-decade or so, he’s notched up club hits alongside the likes of (hey, hint!) BT, Oakenfold, Chicane, MYNC & others. However, with ‘Amelia’, his lead-out single (and into 2016, a full artist album), he’s ushering in a new sound, feel and era to his music. Drawing on his multi-instrumental roots of indie/alternative and unifying them with slick electronic production to create a soaring, electrifying vocal anthem; Amelia really hits the spot. Uncompromising in it’s use of live instruments and huge synth-sounds, it’s the kind of music which defines Lyonheart’s sound as a master of attention-to-detail and songwriting expertise. Holland’s label-finest are blazing Lyonheart’s trail with a run of remixes that take the radio-oriented Original Mix and repoint it in the direction of club floors.

Precursor versions from LTN, Somna and Brian Laruso, all heralding the Original, have been released in October and November. Leading this month-long mix-charge is AVA Recordings young-gun Somna... He wastes no time in putting march into the drums, intensifying the LFO, hooking the floor in with some serious distortion and – drop-side – electrifying with his piano lines. Seeding the intro of his mix with a more melodic feel, one of the principal breakthrough trance names of 2015 drop his take on ‘Amelia’.
Louis ‘LTN’ Tan spins the harmonies far & wide and, with escalating synth ascension, matches ‘Amelia’s vocal tone note-for-note.
Black Hole’s third remixer takes a cooler, more chilled approach to the track. Regular Roger Shah production cohort Brian Laruso shuffles in the timbale percussion and delivers a dusk-tinged version, which gives Lyonheart’s vocal more of a lamenting, summer-ending wistfulness.
