The one that got away? Ireland’s @DeanRobertmusic ponders the question after the relationship is “Gone”


“Gone” is the third single release from Berlin-based Irish singer/songwriter Dean Robert, former member of the Irish rock/R&B group IKONICS. It’s different and more introspective than previous Tipsy Records pop bops “Get Up” and “Morning”, with a slinky rhythm that will leave you wanting more. The lyrics unfold a story that some of us have faced – the relationship that could have been. “Gone” muses the regret behind not doing more to make it happen, but the bubbly melody gives “Gone” a real lift, and you can see Dean perform the song in the video above.  I’ll pitch this one to fans of Years & Years and Troye Sivan.

@officialMaxR turns @JRJRmusic’s “Gone” into an #EDM Anthem

JR JR, “Gone” (MaxR remix)

JR JR’s “Gone” is a recent Warner Brothers release that’s looking to expand its listenership through a remix contest.  One of the entries is this MaxR redux which has Avicii influence in its pocket and EDM anthems in its head.  MaxR takes the pop/folk qualities of the original and makes them soar uncharacteristically through powerful hi-end synths and rhythms.  MaxR (aka Max Weinik) is a Baltimore-based producer/DJ relatively new to the scene, and whether or not he wins the remix contest, this is a fine job that should turn some ears.  Download it for free at the Soundcloud link above.

Diggin’ deep house with the @INSTRUMental remix of @Monogemlovesyou’s “Gone”

MONOGEM, “Gone” (INSTRUM remix)

What impresses most about this INSTRUM deep house remix of “Gone”, the new single by L.A. singer/songwriter Monogem (aka Jen Hirsh), is how it seemlessly bridges genres without becoming a chaotic melting pot of ideas.  The Brooklyn NY producer/DJ keeps the pop flavour on top of the mix, allowing the deep house rhythms to flourish and take over in a sometimes future-style sweep, and adding a hip hop undercurrent that keeps it fresh.  The song itself is a pop earworm that shouldn’t be overlooked.  Pick up the original version on iTunes; download the remix at the Soundcloud link above and follow INSTRUM on Spotify.
