2020 was apparently a career-defining year for artist, producer and musician, Mako. His sophomore album, ‘Fable’, was released in mid-December on Ultra Records after a slew of lead singles throughout the year and now he prepares to continue the momentum with an album of remixes that allow the listener to enjoy the track in a reimagined way.
Kicking off the remix album is German producer Jan Blomqvist, possibly known for his melodic compositions and techno-inspired club tracks, he lends his style to ‘Roller Coaster’ and flips the original into a deeper club offering.
Capitalising on the somber essence of the original, Jan remix weaves melodic deep house sensibilities into Mako’s original composition as he transforms the melody into a driving soundscape with additional instrumentals. While the original treads on the lines between genres, the remix highlights the electronic elements as it aims to lead the listener on a sonic roller coaster.
Mako’s ‘Fable’ is his most personal body of work to-date. Maximising his musical background, each composition offered a unique contribution to his 11-track sophomore album. Following the release, he kicked off 2021 on a high note with his collaboration with Lindsey Stirling, ‘Lose You Now’. Stirling called upon Alex Seaver to lend his songwriting and vocals to her original instrumental-only track ‘Guardian’. The single has quickly amassed over a million streams since its release.
Mako gears up to reveal 12 new renditions to add to his catalogue. Set for release on 12 March, the ‘Fable’ remix album ‘promises many intriguing offerings from talented producers around the world.’
