Today, we have the distinct pleasure of being one of the first sites to cover the new remix release from emerging Vancouver-based artist/producer On Planets. This time around, he decided to put a really chill spin on the MXMS single “OMG.” MXMS asked him to remix the track while they wrap up their nationwide tour and they’re big fans of the remix.
With a solid intro and epic build, the song takes off at 1:36. Beginning with pleasant vocal harmonies and drifting into a steady synth melody with soft percussion in the middle of it all, you can already tell this is an “adventure” track. I call it an adventure track because somehow once the song hits its’ stride, I can’t help but subconsciously create a montage of all of the best memories from my travels and experiences in life. One of my favorite things about this track are the combination of the soft female vocals and the steel pan-sounding melody that evokes those feelings of adventure, thoughts of past experiences, and hope for better days to come, too.
On Planets is no stranger to killer remixes, having released major reworks of hit songs from Gallant and Jack U this year. Those tracks have now amassed well over 100K listens and with this new one, we’re certain he’s not going to show any signs of slowing down, even as 2015 comes to a close. Stream this gem below!
