Following the release of the long-awaited single ‘Monday Blues’ by Eric Sharp and Zhao on Swedish imprint House Music With Love, the next natural step was to invite a couple of amazing artists and producers to put their own spin on the already beautiful track.

The french duo Pandhora, London based producer Urmet K and Swiss producer SOAME were obvious choices and oh did they deliver. While still preserving the heart and soul of the original track, all three versions in this remix package come with its own unique touch and are an absolute treat to experience. Urmet K went for a heavier and bouncier route by switching up and adding to the bassline as well as pushing for harder-hitting hi-hats and percussions that blend together perfectly with the added colorful notes. The french producer pair Pandhora set out to create a vast soundscape and absolutely nailed it. The synthesizers were put to action by letting the notes ring out and wobble throughout the track making it very spacious, and the added bonus of live elements makes the track very organic and beautiful.

Swiss producer SOAME chose another path and went for a different and much darker vibe. Deciding to work with the original bassline but then implementing colder and grittier notes that are given space to echo throughout the production makes for a very intimate but spooky atmosphere. A beautiful creation by a very talented producer.

Spanish producer Marat Mode returns to the Malmö based label House Music With Love. This time with “Like We Do” a collaboration with Malmö based singer/songwriter The Land Below otherwise known for his cinematic dream pop and indie gems like Don’t Trust The Rain & And On.

“Like We Do” is a tribute to young love, so infinite yet often so short. The Land Below says ”Like We Do is a song of sorrow and hope. A collaboration that came easy as Marat Mode’s beat felt natural and resonated with me. The words are inspired by the dialogue of a movie that Guillermo had seen, so it feels like we both a part to play there.”
