Sandro Perri is a Canadian artist whose music has always covered a lot of ground while he himself has remained constant with all of the changes he chooses to do. For his new release, he gives “Changes” and “Love & Light” to remixers, and all he can do is sit back and see how people reinterpret his creations. The end results are quite interesting.
The thing with Perri’s music is that you never know what you’ll get until you get there, but that can be said for pretty much every song and album you listen to. There’s a sense of confidence in knowing that as a fan of Perri, you’re going to be someone who will want to understand what’s going on. In this case, you can two remixes of both songs. The Eluvium and ZoNgamin remixes of “Changes” sound completely different from one another, almost to where you don’t realize you’re hearing mixes of the same song. The best is arguably saved for “Love And Light”, where the Mickey Moonlight Remix sounds like something you’d hear in an adventurous club at 2:22am, where every sound comes off like the perfect soundtrack of what you’re seeing: moans, whispers, and chopped up break beats luring you in. However, the Max Gross Regurge takes the song out if the club and into the forest in order to bring the song (and the listener) into nature, to see and hear what you’re missing. Like the two mixes of “Changes”, the two “Love & Light” mixes sound worlds away from one another, and hopefully Perri listened to these after receiving them and said “wow, now this blew me away”. Then again, he released them so of course he approved them. The next step is for these songs to enter your mind so it will continue its adventure inside of you.
