Gabriel & Dresden
The duo conjures an artful mix of trance, techno, house, and pop that has transformed the landscape of 21st-century EDM. Josh Gabriel has formal training in music composition. Dave Dresden has been an esteemed club DJ, a Billboard club chart reporter, and music director for a radio station.
Dresden’s role as a curator for the legendary Pete Tong’s Essential Selection ultimately led this duo into a meeting by chance in Miami during MMW. The two struck a genuine synergy that captivated listeners around the world.
The original track of “The Only Road” opens the album as a nature-inspired melodic piece with sounds of crackling fire, owls, and crickets.
Furthermore, the Cosmic Gate remix of the song delivers a type of magic that will surely be a main stage banger. From intense and uplifting synths to the eerie breakdown, they certainly give the track a trance makeover that will reach a massive audience.
The vocals of Sub Teal are still heavily featured and enhanced by the instrumentation behind them. Most of all, if you have not seen an Anjunabeats set, expect to hear this on a nearby dance floor.
OneEDM also had the chance to ask Dave Dresden what he thought of the remix:
We were blown away by how good it is.
