Like his contemporary Erik Arbores, much of the buzz surrounding Cole Plante seems to be about his age (16) rather than his music. As someone who has seen Cole spin (at Promo Only Summer Sessions) and spoken to him about production (interview coming soon), I can attest that Cole is talented and knowledgeable rather than some packaged product for Disney. “Lie To Me” is a good introduction to his music, a progressive-leaning stadium-pop track, not dissimilar to recent releases by Axwell and Markus Schulz. The lyrics about lying might be a bit mature for his age, but these were most likely written by singer Koko Laroo (who we last heard with Felix Cartal on “Young Love”). A strong set of remixes by R3hab, Juventa and DJ Escape/Tony Coluccio set the track to be a banger for each subgenre (electro, progressive, and tribal). If this isn’t enough of an endorsement to check out his record, remember that Cole was handpicked by Kerli to remix her single “The Lucky Ones.”
