Taken from Carmada's Realise EP, the Maribelle-featured "On Fire" is one of the more emotional cuts from the Sydney, Australia-based duo. The blend of Maribelle's snappy vocals with the synth-driven bounce of the instrumental makes an obvious winner for the crew, and on December 11, OWSLA (Carmada's U.S. home) is set to drop a remix EP for "On Fire," featuring this deep and dark house take from Destructo and Bot.
While people might know Destructo for being a) the man behind the HARD series of parties and b) deep in the G-house game, he's been involved in the electronic music scene for years. Bot was formerly one-half of Crookers and has spent his time since crafting gems while helping run the prolific Main Course imprint. These two linking up for this remix proves to be a murky, memorable take on "On Fire," blending a hypnotic synth with a clip of Maribelle's vocal for maximum late night dancefloor mayhem. It's one of those tunes that isn't big on sweeping intros or breakdowns; it gets down to business early, and keeps you moving like proper club music should. The simple melody feels like a throwback to the '90s house scene, with some acid-tinges thrown on it for good measure. A true sight to behold.
You can catch this on the On Fire remix EP, which includes remixes from Mystery Skulls, Naderi and Y2K as well.
