Part of being a journalist is discovering and watching new talent develop over time. It’s pretty obvious in the EDM world when a new producer drops a hot track, gets support from the big guys, and gradually gets larger festival gigs. In the commercial world, aspiring producers seem to gain traction with white labels of pop records and eventually building a following that leads to a official remixes and original releases . Great talents like Liam Keegan, Danny Verde, and Ranny have done just this, and next out of the chute are British duo The Thin Red Men. With a successful run of remixes for Gloria Estefan, One Direction, and Taylor Dayne, they make the move to original production with a surprising twist. “Remember Me” is full on trance-pop, similar to radio singles that you would expect from Dash Berlin, Armin van Buuren, or BT, with a hauntingly beautiful vocal by fellow newcomer Gilly Nina. They are also riding the ’90s flashback meme with chord changes reminiscent of classic Perfecto releases. It will be interesting to see how “Remember Me” fares as an (as of now) unsigned track, but here’s hoping that DJs in the know discover this future crossover hit.
