22 year-old LA native David Dann continues to impress with his remix of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane,” an atmospheric, beautifully structured blend of indie sentimentality and deep house rumble. Dann effortlessly weaves melancholy guitars, graceful strings, and an oh-so-gradual progressive break together for a track that defies genre categorization.
“Big Jet Plane” is an emotional journey that reflects Dann’s commitment to thoughtful, intelligent tracks. In a scene overflowing with copycats and sound-a-likes, the young Angeleno’s commitment to finding his own sonic identity is a refreshing change of pace. Songs like this work equally well on a dancefloor as they do on the drive home from work. If this one doesn’t make you feel something, you’re dead inside.
