I Can See Clearly Now
|A01||I Can See Clearly Now|
Beat Solèr is Seelenluft. The Swiss entrepreneur from Zürich and innovator of modern, interesting and danceable music has felt closely linked to a continuing reinvention of electronic sounds for more than a decade.
After excursions into the world of soundtrack- music, dance performances and experimental sounds Beat Solèr returns to his roots of electronic music: to the club. Still, he is far away from a simple four-to-the-floor-aesthetic: there is pop in it! Ever since his last album "Out of the Woods", Seelenluft is known beyond all known stylistic and geographic borders as a DJ, composer and producer who transcends all existing principles, who knows no limit. He is somebody who fills the idea of electronic music with new contents. In the summer of 2003, "Manila", the most successful single of the album, had a bomb- like impact on dancefloors all over the world: the track was featured on more than 60 compilations, was found in top ranks in almost any stylespecific milleniumcharts and thus was only one more proof for the unique approach of Beat Solèr.
The current single "I Can See Clearly Now" is both at the same time: a bit of pop and weird, edgy but still loveable, reduced but not naked, precise yet detailed. It has an intimacy and homogenity which is hard to be found in the field of pseudo- electroclash. The vocals are sung by Jim Reid, former singer of The Jesus & Mary Chain. While still being in London where the vocals were recorded and where the track was given the final touch, Beat Soler explained his choice of Jim Reid: "As I have always admired him. I would have never thought that it would be so easy to win him for my kind of music."
