“Alchemy”, one of Above & Beyond’s best-loved collaborations with Zoë Johnston takes a surprisingly dark turn in the hand of self-professed “techno malware” maestro, i_o. Following an impressive series of club-tooled cuts on Mau5trap, the LA-based producer is a bombastic new voice in a new wave of US producers inspired by labels like Pryda, Drumcode and Cocoon. An unabashed fan of Above & Beyond, the remix marks i_o’s formal induction to the Anjunabeats family.
 
First heard on Above & Beyond’s 2011 album, “Group Therapy”, “Alchemy” is stripped out and remodelled: propulsive drums push us forward relentlessly, clinically, twisting Zoë Johnston’s sonorous ode to lost love arms into something much darker. A call-to-arms for the black room boys and girls of 2019: i_o has hacked your evening, resistance is futile.

Vocals “Alchemy”:
All these words you speak to me
Are from a foreign land
You’re telling me that birds don’t fly
How can it be that you love her?
You don’t have to raise your voice
I still don’t understand
There’s me and you, and you and me
So how can it be that you love her?
 
It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy ~ now it’s all gone
And she is the golden one
 
So what are you saying?
We’ve got to dismantle it all?
Rip up the paper, smash up the walls
How can it be that you love her?
Take all of the things that we so carefully made
Take all of the life you have betrayed
How can it be that you love her?
