In preparation for the release of his second album titled ‘Electric Lines’, Joe Goddard shares a remix of his yearning ballad ‘Home’ by electronic innovator Morgan Geist.
By highlighting the infectious bassline and sincere vocals, Geist strips back the original and kicks up the energy with hard hitting percussion. Adding in subtle grooves from the hook that’s reminiscent of the disco-era showcases its soulful essence and dancefloor focused style.
Goddard touched on the vision behind the original and Morgan’s rendition: "The original song was designed to be the ultimate successor to ‘Promised Land' by Joe Smooth. I wanted Morgan to remix the track so that the naive positivity of the song would be tempered by his gnarled New York house attitude, and he delivered!”
To complement the original, ‘Home’ was given an official music video directed and animated by Pete Fowler, which touches on the thoughts and emotions one has when returning home from a night out clubbing.
The Greco-Roman co-founder’s first solo album since 2009 consists of 10 new tracks and will be released on April 21 via Greco-Roman/Domino. Purchase here
