There are many iconic and classic EDM songs that always strike a special chord within my heart. “Aerodynamic” from Daft Punk and “Strobe” by deadmau5 are two of my absolute top favorites. But Ian Van Dahl’s “Castles In The Sky” was one of the very first songs I heard when I began my foray into the world of EDM. And it’s had a special place in my heart ever since. So naturally I lost it when I realized i_o was finally releasing his own esteemed remix of it. And boy does it deliver. It starts of with that perfect kick that only i_o can give us, with that familiar trance-infused chord progression we all know too well. “Do you ever question your life? Do you ever wonder why?” Once those iconic lyrics come in and the buildup arrives, it’s over. The drop hits as hard as ever with maximum goosebumps deliverance. Whether you’re an old school raver or a new one, this remix will hit you in all the right feels. My only qualm with this remix is that it’s too short. I wish there would’ve at least been an extended mix, or even a club mix for that matter. Regardless, this version gets straight to the point, but hopefully an extended mix will be released in the future. All in all, i_o’s “Castles in the Sky” Remix is sure to satisfy ravers of any kind.
