Zane Lowe debuted the Axwell Radio Edit on his BBC Radio 1 Show on 22 April 2013, here are his thoughts on the track:
“Discopolis – Falling, Axwell’s mix. Sounded brilliant, interesting to see how the Swedes are branching out and what their first movements are following the dismantling of that trio. You got Axwell, moving into the big radio records world with a massive mix of Discopolis, it sounded huge I thought.”
Axwell has produced single ‘Falling (Committed To Sparkle Motion)’ from Scottish Indie Band Discopolis and as you may have guessed, the title is inspired by cult classic Donnie Darko. Axwell first heard the Scottish band when their debut single ‘Lofty Ambitions’ was play listed on BBC introducing and it was through that playlist the guys made their festival debut playing the Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds. They have received extensive Radio 1 support from BBC introducing plus plays from Nick Grimshaw, Pete Tong and Rob da Bank.
The four piece group have supported the likes of Friendly Fires, Wild Beasts, Metronomy, Simian Mobile Disco, Django Django and Matthew Dear while also remixing for The Wombats, Paper Crows, Diagrams, Miaoux Miaoux and Airship. The DubVision remix of ‘Falling (Committed To Sparkle Motion)’ was a mainstay throughout the Swedish House Mafia one last tour and has also been supported by Tiesto, David Guetta, Nicky Romero, Avicii, gaining over 400,000 plays on YouTube to date.
This is not the first time Axtone have released something from the alternative ‘world’, having released a remix of Miike Snow in 2012. Axwell himself has long been associated with remixing bands, including Coldplay, Temper Trap and Hard Fi to name a few.
There are also the original, Dubvision Remix and Radio Edit versions. The official video was shot in Aviemore, Scotland.
