Axwell's Edit is one of my all-time favorites! What genre is this labeled as, btw?

My guess is indie pop/rock/house :)
Moving on the inside...
Screaming on the outside...

I know original is Indie Nu/Dance or so, dunno about Axwell's mix but anyway the only thing we need to know is that it's awesome

AXT34R Falling (Committed To Sparkle Motion) (CLMD Remix)
2013


So so so many versions of an already solid song! This is something I really like to see! As you've seen for yourselves in this lookback thread, the early releases usually had an arsenal of different mixes. Luckily we recently got Paradigm and Torn Apart, but Committed To Sparkle Motion was the one that brought the art of variety back after a very very long time :mrgreen: .

The duo that gave the final touch to Falling, are norwegians CLMD. Like Axtone mentioned themselves, CLMD were actually fanboys themselves before making their debut. I believe they even visited this forum from time to time! So with that in mind, it's no surprise that this remix is strongly reminiscent of Axtone's progressive past.

It reminds me specifically of Dubfire's hypnotizing summer of dub mix for Axwell's I Found you. Not only in actual sounds, but in that journey-like lenght as well. Dubfire's remix is still the longest track on Axtone I believe, but this remix by CLMD is in the top 5 definitely. The more you know :lol: . Talking about useless #AXFACTS: Falling (Committed To Sparkle Motion) and Nothing But Love are the only two releases so far that had more than two different artworks for one release!

(@2:00 Minutes, the debut of the remix in question by NO_ID during a very early Tomorrowland set)

Looking back, it's good to see the label is issuing more remixes for their tracks again nowadays, as going through all these separate versions for these post is reminding me of how creative and fun dance music can be! Committed To Sparkle Motion was a fantastic ride that produced four great records, which together surely deserve a spot amongst the most defining releases of Axtone history.

CLMD is a SICK remix...a track that really stood out in recent years of Axtone, for me, because it's a proper journey track in a long time for Axtone...Progressive House at it's best...and it was released in August i think, just the perfect timing with that awesome Sea-Blue artwork...really nice change of paste from Original and Axwell's Edit (which are great as well)... ;)

Carl Louis was active here back in 2008 and was already releasing stuff that Axwell supported, like CLMD - The Message w/ Open Your Heart acapella, a great mashup!

About the remix, YES it's quite a special release from fans of Axtone that brought back the feelings you had back when Axtone was created. I was one of the biggest haters of it until the release, I saw the length, I felt its vibe and then I fell in love with it haha!

Falling is a VERY special step in Axtone history, no doubt about it

Oh that first moment when the kick hits you around 1 min into the track, fucking chills. Thats what me and my friends are playing when we are testing maxing out speakers :lol: . That track and Blow Up (Ax & TG remix).

Say all you want about the track, but I think Wakanda's kick is could be in that list. Everything outside the drop sounds super thight I think
