Michael Brun & Melo-X Bring The Heat To Maxwell’s ‘Lake By The Ocean’


"Lake By The Ocean" was the single that ushered in a new era for Maxwell and it got many of his die-hard fans open for what was to come with the release of blackSUMMERS'night. But we all know there's more to our boy Max than mellow smooth grooves. When he wants, he can jam with the best of them. To prove that point, Maxwell has released two brand new remixes of  "LBTO" that are sure to heat up the rest of your summer.

First up, Maxwell tapped producer Michael Brun to give the song a bit of island flavor. The Miami-based DJ infuses the track with a bit of progressive house and Hatian rhythm to create a swaying jam that's perfect to move to on the dance floor with that special someone and wine the night away. Max also tapped Melo-X, who puts his own unique spin on "LBTO." He starts the song with sparse synths, letting Maxwell's vocal build before he fills the space with hard-hitting programmed drums that are similar to Michael Brun's remix. He then flips all of that on its head, slowing the vocal as he introduces skittering hi-hats before sending it back to his original idea.

You can listen to each of the remixes below via Spotify. Let us know which one is your favorite or if you, like us, are feeling both.
