TYLER SHAW, “When You’re Home” (Dzeko remix)
In its original version, which was released not too long ago, “When You’re Home” by British Columbia’s Tyler Shaw is a poignant, dark ballad that has a sweeping second half. Following up the effervescent first single “Remember”, it perhaps was too much of a change of pace. A few of Tyler’s songs have successfully flirted with dance music makeovers in the past, and I couldn’t be more pleased to see Toronto’s Dzeko at the helm – many times I’ve both written about and seen these talented gents perform over the years. “When You’re Home” is transformed into a poignant, dark deep house release that could work very well for both radio and club DJ’s. It’s got a rich, sophisticated backdrop that wraps you up and doesn’t let you go. Tyler’s committed, vivid vocal is captured so well, and in a way that was probably never anticipated. This version of “When You’re Home” is another in a long line of fine remixes that cast a totally different light on a song and make the most of it.
