MILENA’s debut single from her second album “Everyday” was a flawless masterpiece, even before Nick Van Gelder got his EDM paws on the track to create the vibrantly shallow new remix.
In the original track the London based singer Milena Lainovic captured that sunset boulevard glow in her sound, by constructing the ultimate anthem to listen to as the sun comes up. Fans of her music are either going to love or hate the remix which sadly detracts away from the resonance in her old school beats which she orchestrates around the poignancy of her vocal ability. The Van Gelder remix doubled the duration of the track by packing in repetitive beats and more loops than you can shake a stick at which will no doubt appeal to EDM Dance fans with a penchant for the contemporary trance sound. Yet, I still can’t help but feel an injustice has befallen this track, as MILENA’S voice is swallowed by the sonic backdrop of the remix.

To Discover more of MILENA’s original work head on over to her website where you can find more on her debut album:
London based singer-songwriter, piano player and all round multi-talented performer has released her second album Everyday featuring “He”, an uplifting track representing a zealous confidence across all musical platforms, and fusing a classical element to the pop genre. Milena is an artist who takes her career seriously. Through every ounce of detail in writing her own songs, the sheer positivity in her performance and not to mention the amount of passion she expresses in her stride. Yet, what stands out in “He”, is the nonchalant attitude she depicts; Milena’s cheery attitude is an obvious natural element of her character, and is what gives her music personal style.
The subject of “He” is traditionally meagre, but the performance of Milena is what increases the song’s prolific competence. Milena passionately sings, “He gives me all that I need/Is it possible to fall in love with him”, it’s not so much the lyrics which draws us into the track, but the devotion Milena shares with music. As the track reaches its close, Milena puts the nail in the coffin with an unexpected solo on the piano, ending the song as it started, with pure elegancy.
