There’s a famous quote that says simplicity is the hallmark of great design. While I can’t find who originally said that, I can use it to describe the brilliant track “Echoes.” Take the classic vocals of Sting singing “Voices Inside My Head” and build a gorgeous stadium house track around it. That’s exactly what the Swedish trio of Henrik B, Niklas Gustavsson, and Peter Johansson did. It’s simple by design and superior in execution, so there’s not much more that needs to be said about it. Aside, of course, from “check out the video and buy the download to play in your mp3 player.” DJs will probably stick to the original mix, but the harder mixes by WeSmile and Merk Kremont are quite good. Spencer Brown’s piano house/indie hybrid remix is kind of leftfield, but worth a spin for those who like their tracks on the quirky tip.
