James Egbert’s “Back To New” was one of my favorite releases from 2012. As a dubstep track that hit the perfect medium between heavy filth and heavenly chill, the original was a masterpiece unto itself. Then, when I heard 3LAU’s remix, I fell in love with progressive house. When it was announced that “Back To New” would be the source track for Insomniac’s Discovery Project: Beyond Wonderland Remix Competition, I was beyond ecstatic. Some fantastic entries have already been shared with the world, and this one is noteworthy. In his Bassmonster premiere, Downlow’d delivers a phenomenal electro version that literally feels like a trip Beyond Wonderland. Focusing the build around the celestial vocals, the build is characteristically house, and the emergence of the vocals is superbly radiant. The drop contrasts it so elegantly that dancing is a default action. Smiles are included, and happiness inevitably ensues.
