PREMIERE: Mako Recruits Rat City For Mesmerizing Remix of ‘Ocelot’
Following the release of Mako’s widely-received sophomore album, Fable, the multifaceted musician and producer prepares for his subsequent Fable remix album, set for release next month.
Ahead of the album, Mako recently revealed a stunning remix from Jan Blomqvist which has amassed nearly 300,000 streams since the release and received support from Pete Tong. Up next, Mako recruits Norweigan Grammy-nominated trio Rat City to lend a lively dance remix of ‘Ocelot’. Out now via Ultra Music, the remix is available across streaming platforms.
Released as one of the lead singles of Fable, ‘Ocelot’ is high-octane track with a stunningly memorable acoustic guitar riff propelled into an indie-dance anthem with pop sensibilities. Adding more of an electronic edge to the track, Rat City flips ‘Ocelot’ into a wavy dance cut while still capitalizing on the vibrant elements from the original. Mako’s captivating vocals remain the focal point of the track as Rat City shifts the melody to a future bass-forward soundscape. The infectious remix hones in on Mako’s electronic music tendencies while showcasing Rat City’s versatile and authentic sound.
Commanding nearly one million monthly listeners on Spotify, Norweigan trio Rat City have been making waves within the pop and dance music realms since their debut single ‘Kind of Love’ in 2019. The track went on to receive a nomination for ‘Song of The Year’ at the Norweigan Grammys. The group has quickly become a Spinnin’ Records favorite with releases like ‘Down Under’ with LVNDSCAPE, ‘After Party’ ft. Rich The Kid, and more. They also wrote and produced Dagny’s 2020 single “Somebody” which just won Song of the year on Norway’s P3 (their equivalent of BBC Radio 1).
Fable marked Alex Seaver’s most personal body of work as Mako, as he explored a variety of genres and honed in on his rich musical background. As he continues the sharp trajectory of his sophomore album, Mako gears up to reveal twelve new renditions to supplement Fable. Set for release on April 9, 2021, the Fable remix album promises many intriguing offerings from talented producers around the world.
