about

Floating (Remixes) is the latest release from singer, songwriter, and producer Mattie Safer. Safer first captured the public's attention with his era-defining work as the bassist and co-lead vocalist in The Rapture. Following on from the release of his latest single, “Floating” (a smooth neo-disco piece of Paradise Soul with a message that Safer made with Filip Nikolic, the singer and producer of Poolside), Safer returns with a collection of remixes from three exciting producers reworking the title track in a variety of club-friendly forms.

First up, James Curd (Greenskeepers) delivers a Jamiroquai-esque house rework that mines his Chicago roots and elevates the track to a soulful stratosphere. Next up, a lovely mix from Jonathan Roshad of the up-and-coming Los Angeles duo NEWBODY, bringing elements of house, techno and new jack swing together to create a jacking accompaniment to Safer’s soulful vocal delivery. Rounding out the set is a futuristic, funky techno remix from latest Ed Banger signing Borussia.

BlackBook said of the original "his stirring new single... has us genuinely excited for what’s to come. It crosses classic 70s soul with cool, Scissor Sisters style contemporary disco fab... punched up by a surfeit of irresistible hooks."

Combining Safer's soulful sound and songwriting with new production from three exciting producers, Floating (Remixes) is a release to be reckoned with.

Track Name: Floating (Original Version)
Sometimes late at night I get to questioning
Why do we fight? Can't we just live in harmony?
And then I look to the sky and wonder if there's another way
If we could shed our history and live in the truth of today

10,000 light years away maybe we find us a place
Where all the bullshit around can disappear without trace
Without the weight of the world, we'll find a loving embrace
Live a beautiful life floating in outer space

If we didn't have these earthly things would hatred simply disappear
Without posessions to divide us tell me could we just forget our fear
Cuz times are rough and life gets tough and I just slip away into abyss
Escape from all the petty lies that terrorize into a quiet peaceful bliss

10,000 light years away maybe we find us a place
Where all the bullshit around can disappear without trace
Without the weight of the world, we'll find a loving embrace
Live a beautiful life floating in outer space
