Heady with hooks and unforgettable melodies, gliding on deeply danceable grooves, Air Waves’ innate compassion, concision and uncanny pop continues to shine. Nico Schneit revisits their acclaimed 2022 album ‘The Dance’ by way of a new remix from Canadian, electronic duo Blue Hawaii.
“It’s about feeling good about yourself no matter if you’re alone or with someone else and also learning to walk away when something feels bad.” explains Nico “I think of people dancing to techno alone, in the dark, foggy clubs where nothing matters and there’s no judgement just music to lose yourself to.”
Blue Hawaii’s ‘Not My Boss’ and ‘I Felt Love’ from their 2020 album ‘Under 1 House’ lifted Nico when a relationship came to an end. Inviting Blue Hawaii to rework endearing album opener, ‘The Roof’, the single is transformed into a techno inspired euphoric track that evokes those fun and loose nights out clubbing.
This energetic new collaboration ‘The Roof (Blue Hawaii Upside Down Remix)’ continues to build themes of strength and solidarity explored on ‘The Dance’.
“The party vibes ‘The Dance’ elicits are about the carefree gatherings we were all fantasizing about while COVID numbers were reaching their first peak.” Flood
“Beautiful and highly evocative” CLASH
“The Dance is perhaps Schneit’s most diverse set to date, with songs that range in style from guitar rock to quirky synth pop and folky minimalism.” ★★★★ AllMusic
