Tycho has put out some new remixes that I’m just now catching up on. Taking the relatively newer jam from Portugal. The Man for a double remix package — the Sunrise and Sunset versions of “Live in the Moment” — Scott Hansen has truly outdone himself here. And it helps that the original track is pretty solid in and of itself.
Here’s a bit of what he said in the press release about this set of tunes…
“As a producer and musician who primarily creates instrumental songs I jumped at the chance to work with Portugal. The Man’s unique vocal style,” says Scott Hansen, Tycho’s primary composer, songwriter, and producer. “I try to approach remixes in a way that casts the original song in a new light while staying true to its core elements. Getting to explore totally different spaces with these two versions, it allowed me to better express my take on the song. I wanted to create a lighter, more energetic version (Sunrise) and darker, more introspective one (Sunset) to highlight and contrast the parts of the original song that most inspired me.”

“Live In The Moment” — featured on Portugal. The Man’s eighth studio album WOODSTOCK — is the follow up to the album’s lead single “Feel It Still,” which was undoubtedly one of the biggest songs of 2017.
