Listen to Axel Mansoor’s remix of “Wasted My Love” by Sleeping Lion here.
Sleeping Lion dreams again tonight and this time, they’re dreaming via Axel Mansoor’s recent release, “Wasted My Love”. With their spellbinding rendition of this track, Axel envisions the song in a whole new dimension.
With Mansoor’s original angelic vocals and ghostly falsettos, his intonations for broken hearts and unproductive time spent on love move and pull hearts in directions all over the place. In the remix, the song is only augmented into a novel electronic genre of its own. From the serene indie-pop waves, we are re-gifted a song with a new filter, layered in action, coated with shadowy, dreamy undertones, and dusted with robotic intonations. In this version of the track, it comes to life, breathing a fiery intensity erupting from the bass, through the synths, and out through the vocals and speakers. The single received recognition and was premiered by Beautiful Buzzz the day of its release.
The song was also remixed by Dulsae, in a more intense, club-like way that also offers a different perspective of and emotion from the track. Listen to that version HERE.
“Wasted this love, you wasted my love. Well, I guess it’s time to move on to the next best thing…” sings Mansoor as he enters into a post-apocalyptic whirlwind of his own melody. Imagine a heart-broken by a lover and the original version of the song being the emotions you present on the surface, but when you dig deeper, what’s truly happening inside is this remix– is this chaotic harmony, bursting into sonic orchestral destruction that takes you through the ups and downs of sensations the heart and mind is feeling at this moment.
So, take a step into this wonderland of new sound that Sleeping Lion so masterfully remixes of Axel Mansoor’s best song yet, “Wasted My Love”.
