Unbridled kinetic energy is the best way I can sum up the electrifying vibes displayed on “I Am (Remix)”, another stellar recording and composition by Italian singer, songwriter,
and producer Gianluca Zanna. “I Am (Remix)” is a quintessential EDM/dance track that can illuminate any scenario that it is played in by way of its luminous sonics, infectious melodies, and a compelling vocal cameo by Gianluca, particularly, in the intro which truly sets up the intrigue of this track.
For this latest project, Gianluca teams up with his frequent collaborators, renowned record producer and sound engineer Brian Reeves (Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Billy Idol, U2, and Simple Minds) who manned the mixing board, and Simone Sello who provided the arrangement. These three immensely talented artists have worked their musical magic together on a number of ear-catching singles and certainly do not disappoint with “I Am (Remix)”
Before we dive into the details of the incredible instrumentation and sound design of this song, it’s important that we point out the origins of this track and how remarkably Gianluca possesses the creative dexterity to take any moment or experience in his life…from the grandest of experiences to even the simplest occurrences, and he can craft a song that has commercial appeal and an intrinsic relatability. Gianluca provides the interesting back story of what sparked the creation of “I Am (Remix)”….
I had a dream, and music was in my dream, the piano arpeggio was flowing in my dream while I was flying in the sky I woke up and immediately recorded with my digital personal recorder humming the melody. Then few days ago I was facing the sun on my swimming pool in Miami FL and the lyrics came to me, envisioning the essence of the Song I AM. Gianluca Zanna
What a concept that formed and the end result is a magnificent song. As I mentioned above, this track oozes the core essence of EDM with its bouncing drum track that penetrates the soundscape with vigor. It produces an amazing aural excitement as it pounds the entire field of sound. The percussive elements are draped with a bevy of synth-laden melodies and abstract phrases that hook you in with each note. They create undeniable danceability to the track, are ever so appealing, and mesh extremely well with the innovative arrangement.
“I Am (Remix)” contains a large-scale dose of tonal shifts, mood swings, buildups, risers, and drops that ignite your listening senses, simply put, the vibes are non-stop from this instrumental, and Gianluca obliges it perfectly as he starts the jam off with a sultry, ethereal intro that sets everything in motion…..
