The Melker Project rework Disclosure and Sam Smith’s song Latch into a melodic piano ballad with melancholy waves of enchantment and deeper meaning found in the phrasing of the stripped down vocals.

“Latch is arguably the best song to make it to the pop charts in a number of years. That’s because it’s not really a pop song. It’s an incredible house track that takes me back to the Body N’ Soul days in NYC. When I listen to the song and Sam Smith’s voice, I can’t help but hear the track cut in half and turned into a moodier slow jam… so I created just that. This is an acoustic version anchored by melodic pianos, with low key cymbals, strings and bass added in for extra flavor. I hope you like it – this is definitely one of my favorite pieces that I have created.”

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
