Oli Furness has previously released on labels including Morris Audio, Music Is Love, Nurvous Records and with this release makes his debut appearance on ALiVE.
“Losing Control” has thick set percussion and a subtle rave influence led by female vocal stabs, and a looped breakbeat layered over a four-to-the-floor kick drum. Uplifting with a party vibe, the lead synth and bassline fill the track with energy to give it a dancefloor focus.
The Oli Furness remix of “Losing Control” has additional vocals, plus a more prominent use of the originals lead synth, he makes the track very much his own. Manipulating the vocals to build tension, his remake has an added pressure that is offset by a dramatic piano stab, which hits on an unusual off beat to give his remix a distinctively individual sound.
