Johan Gielen And Morttagua Remix Jam & Spoon’s ‘Right In The Night’

Other tracks may have announced their arrival, but ‘Right In The Night’ was the one that poured the concrete that internationally cemented Jam & Spoon’s rep. The intoxicating, atypical combination of bass pulse, flamenco strings and Plavka’s smoldering song turned it into a pan-European chart hit.

This month Black Hole Recordings takes J&S’s once-breakout/now best-known-for, and rolls it a remix double-six. They’ve enlisted the redoubtable skills of Johan Gielen and Morttagua, who’ve sent it along some markedly different strasses & autobahns, recasting ‘Right’ for their own night.

Jam & Spoon – Right In The Night (Remixes)

Rio-resident and prog-explorer Morttagua is first with the remix flame, fashioning ‘Right’ into a fantastically all-consuming, ether-filled thriller. Bass-throb, percussive tap, spaced sub-melodies and orchestral hits all contribute to its headily-potent progressive vision, ultimately seeing the Brazilian replace its guitar mainline with moody-as-you-like synths.

From there the release pirouettes from deeper perspectives to those of Johan Gielen, who sends ‘Right’ that much later into the night. Mounting his mix atop scudding drums, moving chords and percussion-spurred rhythms, he homages the original’s guitar inflections and maraca snaps, before letting his stirring mainline notes rain from the sky.
