The crew over at Viper have done some digging within their roster and pulled out one of their trusted selections in the form of South Wales hailing BMotion. As he follows up on his previous release, remixing the favourable work of Moby on a track called “A Simple Love”.
BMotion showcases he’s newest work, a track titled “Passenger”, which strikes a chord as it’s a trip back, inducing the 80’s with it’s 8-bit construction, but not entirely immersing you in the chirpy, rattles of 8-bit. The track fills up your sonic thrill with an adequate slab of a beefy bassline that permeates the entire song while the vocal chops flare about, animating the atmosphere. BMotion’s take on how he infuses certain elements not often sought after, sparks interest in how he sculpts his sound should definitely be under your radar!

‘A Simple Love’ is a single by the Electronic/dance music legend, Moby and it’s derived from the album These Systems Are Failing (2016). Now, the Viper artist, BMotion has tweaked the single to cater for the D&B world with his remix of the tune.
The original is quite a listening feat on its own, and is something that blesses the ears and soul… BMotion’s rendition opens up with an uplifting, out-of-this world soundscape then shortly Moby enters with a vocal note then it pauses to allow some time to lead to the drop. When it does, it is a likewise, also something of an up lifter; on a 1-2 Step beat; hand-in-hand with Rock-styled guitar synthesis that leads the track and providing the melody as well, just like in the original but of course, faster in order to match up with the D&B tempo. In a nutshell, the track has a balance between retro and spacey feels, and BMotion made sure that it never lost the essence of the original edit.
What’s to like about the song is its energy mostly, not forgetting a touch of inspiration. And, with all that’s going on in it, the production is quite smooth, clear, and mastered to perfection. I guess BMotion is one artist to start looking out for beyond the scope of this beautiful remix.
