REVIEW: Haux - Homegrown (Thomas Jack Remix) out on Ultra

Settled in the space between dreamy folk and electronic melancholy – Haux is the smoky-eyed silhouette of Woodson Black. Growing up in the Berkshires, the photographer-turned-musician found his voice while wandering the quiet woods and rural landscapes. He narrated life through film photographs, developing a pastoral aesthetic that would go on to inspire Haux. 

After wrapping up a debut headlining tour this Spring and the success of his single "Touch," Haux today shares Australian producer Thomas Jack's hypnotic remix of "Homegrown". The original single counts over 8 million Spotify streams and Thomas Jack's rework elevates the track into deep house territory, amplifying Haux's haunting vocals lending giving the single a dance friendly beat.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Some tracks need the right remix to shine and this new version by Thomas Jack on Homegrown by Haux is exactly what the track needed to become the next anthem for deep house sets. Eclectic melodic house vibes merged magnificently with the haunting mysterious vocals in order to make any deep house lover dance with closed eyes, open ears and hearts. Thomas version is dark, moody, cold, melodramatic and sad but is definitely wonderful to dance along with the nice guitar riffs and the mysterious driving dystopian basslines. If you search for great atmospheric cinematic melodic house this remix is the perfect contender to top your charts for sure. #PureGold Love It[/content]
