The original version is about as smooth and steady as it gets. "Midnight On Rainbow Road" takes the golden-era hip-hop sweep of Vynehall's breakout Music For The Uninvited and gives it an au courant makeover. The guitars and pianos blur like streetlights glowing through a wet windshield, and with only the implication of a beat taking the place of kick drums, Vynehall nails the relaxed feel of cruising down open roads.
The new "Beat Edit," which is exclusive to this release, is hardly a radical reinvention, though it doesn't need to be. Just the crucial addition of a hi-hat and a careful beat readies it for club play without ruining the delicate touches. The remix turns a beautiful beatless piece into something that would brighten a nice warm-up set, and together with the original, continues the streak Vynehall has been on since 2013.
