Lenno’s remix of Tropic Of Pisces’s ‘Symmetry’ has been circulating throughout the web for a several weeks now. But with a pushed back release date, and because so much music slips through the cracks of almost everyone’s electronic music radar, be sure to take a listen to this truly pristine and uplifting remix if it has yet to meet your acquaintance.

Ideal and perfectly suited for the emerging summer atmosphere, Lenno’s take on ‘Symmetry’ seamlessly aligns some of the most yearned for musical elements into one gratifying nu disco production: spirited melodies, clean, upbeat percussion, anthemic tenor, and moving vocal bits. Out now via Ooh La La Recordings, Lenno’s spin on ‘Symmetry’ will undoubtedly get you spinning for days. If you’re looking for a audiovisual treat, be sure to luxuriate in the music video for the remix which aired on Thump earlier in the year.
