Elodie LautenMiracle 2
This new version for Wilde Calm picks up where the white label remixes left off, as Lauten had always intended to record her own dancefloor version of “In the Light...” and found a kindred spirit in collaborating with Brooklyn producer Pocketknife. The track features Lauten on vocals and keys, Nirosta Steel (Steven Hall) on additional vocals, Peter Zummo on trombone, and production/arranging by Pocketknife. Reworks were done by two long-time fans of Lauten, L.A.’s Gifted & Blessed (Technoindigenous Studies, Wild Oats, Eglo) and Brooklyn’s Bryce Hackford (PRAH, DFA). Gifted & Blessed references Lauten’s classic post-minimalist compositions with his remix and takes the dance floor of “Miracle 2” out into the cosmos. Hackford focuses on the instrumental track, extending it way out and roughing it up with heavy Bushwick Body Actualized vibes.
