In a phrase, I find this song amazing. While some might consider I am late to post this, I will agree as Zimmer sent it to me the moment he released it. But like I told him, I wanted to take my time to do a heartfelt write up because the work deserves it.
With every track Baptiste puts out I am more convinced that his way of taking the time between one production and another is the best thing to do — proof is the attention to detail and quality of his work, enter the remix in question.
And the warm-water sea wave behind it? Magical indeed. Midnight Hours, in its original form, is a great song. This remix is what, ladies and gents, we call an instant classic that will sound just as heart-stoppingly fresh in 5 years.
Can't get enough of Zimmer? Check his other work we've featured, my review of his Tina Turner remix on EMPT, and of course the first remix I heard by this frenchman which made me fall in love with his music and introduced me to Pompeya.
