San Holo - Still Looking (Cesqeaux Remix)

Two of the Netherlands greatest exports have cross pollinated their already potent careers. After San Holo jumped on Cesqeaux's #EAUXMYGOD3 with "Who Am I" the Barong Family member returned the favour by remixing the bitbird founder's "Still Looking," now up for free download. I've always been a fan of San Holo's more upbeat, turnt and raucous tracks, which means the addition of Cesqeaux's wylin' style adds a little more oomph to the already brilliant and powerful chords of "Still Looking." It does lose a little bit of that San Holo shine, buffed up by Cesqeaux's buoyant bass, although I believe that is the strength of San Holo's work. Take for example his classic "The Next Episode" remix, its raw chiptune style grips your heart with an unwavering strength, even further "We Rise" follows much of that same tilt, absolutely obliterating eardrums with that sweet, yet somehow sour lead synth in the drops. I believe the combination of Cesqeaux and San Holo is a force to be reckoned with, ever so delicately straddling the line between glittering glory and wacky wildness. After having become addicted to "Who Am I" for more than a week now, it's more than a pleasant surprise to get another 'San Qeauxlo' track, it's a sheer necessity.
