In light of its fifth anniversary, Canadian DJ duo Sultan + Shepard revisited one of their past hits, "Keep Moving," and gave it a special makeover. While still retaining its original uplifting vocals and progressive sound, the reboot of their 2014 collaboration with The Boxer Rebellion explores blissful soundscapes and melodies.
Giving it a modern twist, the Grammy-nominated duo not only elevated the overall breathtaking and freeing feeling of the reboot's predecessor, they also showcased how much they've grown and evolved their own sound over the course of their career.
With progressive house singles and collaborations like "Walls" featuring Quilla and "When We Were Young" with Dillon Francis, big room collaborations like "No Good" with Fedde Le Grand and remixes of pop hits like Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven," Ossama Al Sarraf and Ned Shepard, better known as Sultan + Shepard, found themselves at the forefront of the EDM scene in the early 2010s. At the height of that, "Keep Moving" easily became one of the duo's classics.
This past November, Sultan + Shepard finally released a debut studio album. The two-sided LP, Echoes of Life, has a day and night theme. There are 13 dance pop and future house radio and club-friendly vocal tracks that you can sing along to during the day and nine chill, deep and progressive house instrumental tracks that are more suited to late nights when you're driving around the city or relaxing at home.
Now at the end of the decade with the release of their stunning "Keep Moving" reboot, the DJ duo have not only proved that they will hold dear to their deep progressive roots, but that they will also continue to keep moving forward in building on their sound.
