Solarstone – Restless 4. A.M. (Jam El Mar Remix)

blank

On his musical imagining of your first 24 hours on Ibiza, Solarstone used the ‘island’ album’s ‘Restless 4.a.m.’ to encapsulate that exact time of the clubbing night. A moody, pensive bass-heavy piece, with a portentous nod to ‘Tubular Bells’, it was a transitional tune that – in a ‘less-equals-more’ manner – brought the floor down a gear ahead of dawn’s big conclusion.

As the track reaches its single release, one electronic music legend delivers a baton pass to another, with Jam El Mar taking up ‘Restless 4. a.m.’s remix-reins.

Jam ports Solarstone’s dynamics to the same time of the night, but swaps its club environment. Whilst the original bridged the divide between progressive & trance, Jam’s recalibrates it for more techno-oriented floors. He ups the drum pound and shades them with doomy didgeridoos & middle-distant melodies, before finally letting those ominous bells toll & its bass fully thunder.

‘Restless, 4.a.m.’ – we’ve all been there… and soon will again, as Jam El Mar’s remix hits stores and streaming platforms today. Find it here.
