Editors — Honesty (Dinner Date Remix)
Over the past year or so Munich's Simon Hoppe, aka Dinner Date, has been steadily putting out flawless remixes for the likes of BOY, José Gonzales, Angus & Julia Stone and more — quickly becoming one of our favorite emerging talents. Yesterday, after much too long of a break in our opinion, he released a new rework, this time of Editors latest single Honesty, a track thoroughly suited for these cold and grey winter months we've been having. He's meticulously built slow-burning melodies and various layers of surrounding beats around singer Tom Smith's emotion-laden vocals, constructing a pleasantly reflective, downtempo atmosphere. He's proven himself time and time again to possess an acute attention to detail, clearly spending every moment to perfect his productions, a quality oft overlooked in today's over-saturated dance music scene and one we can certainly appreciate. Always the generous guy, Dinner Date's giving this one out free via his Facebook, so pick yourself up a copy, and keep your ears perked for some excited things coming from him soon.
