At the beginning of this year Gareth Emery, Standerwick, and Hailene released the emotionally riveting "Saving Light," which became the first trance track to reach Number 1 on Beatport's Overall Chart in five years. Notaker has given ‘Saving Light’ a dark remix fitting for its heavy subject matter, which was originally Emery’s personal tribute to the devastation brought by bullying.
Notaker’s remix is a resonant driving baseline paired with futuristic melodies, with the addition of dark elements to the track cast Haliene’s beautiful vocals in a despairing light. The track also hit close to home with Notaker, "I am very honored to get to remix this one for Gareth. Hearing the anti-bullying message associated with the record really struck a chord with me is that I was bullied a lot through middle school and high school," he says of the remix, "Having that experience really made it easy for me to put a lot of emotion and feeling behind this record." The "Saving Light" original and remix are released on Canadian independent label Monstercat, which has also seen releases from Wolfgang Gartner, NERVO, and Seven Lions this year.
The breakthrough American producer, Notaker has received much acclaim for his musical concepts such as the slow tribal burning of the bassline on ‘Born in the Flames’ and the mystical and ethereal-sounding ‘Shimmer’ and the crashing waves and inhale of ‘Abyss’. Notaker’s music has found homes on forward-thinking labels such as Armada, Monstercat, and Mau5trap, setting the stage for an impressive musical resume. The future is looking bright Notaker, stay tuned for more upcoming music in September.
