After hearing the latest A-Minor remix for Float Away, I realized something almost immediately. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but I knew something just wasn’t right about it. So I listened to it again. And again. After about the sixth time, I realized what the issue was. It’s just too perfect. Too smooth. Too slick. But it’s hard to hate on something for being too perfect though, isn’t it? Better to just give in, and let that warm, gentle current take you where it wants to, and surrender. It’s easy to see how Yousef has identified this version as his favourite remix out there.
