A Chilled Dance Remix of JT Roach’s “Divine” by Koresma

As someone who’s been immersed in the electronic music world for over a decade, I’ve learned to appreciate the nuances that separate a good track from a truly transcendent one. Every once in a while, a song comes along that burrows its way into your soul, providing a much-needed respite from the chaos of daily life. Koresma’s remix of JT Roach’s “Divine” is one such gem.

I found this fascinating rework by accident during a very stressful time in my life. Due dates, personal responsibilities, and the general noise and activity of city life had made me feel worn out and disconnected. But as soon as those hauntingly beautiful voices started to play, I felt calm.

The way Koresma has worked on this version is very healing. Instead of adding too many production flourishes to the original, he let the spirit of JT Roach’s composition shine through. There are still nostalgic acoustic guitars and warm pianos that provide a familiar base amidst the waves of pulsing beats and atmospheric sounds.

But what really makes this version stand out is how Koresma has put these different parts together. There are times when the track is calm and reflective, and then there are bursts of energetic music that are ready to be danced to. A delicate balance is hard for many artists to achieve, but Koresma does it with ease.

The fact that I often find comfort in music means that I keep coming back to this remix. When I need to relax after a long day at work or just want some time to think, Koresma‘s “Divine” version has become a personal sanctuary—a sound oasis in the middle of modern life’s chaos.

The sense of place that runs through this track might be what speaks to me the most. You can feel Koresma’s roots in the woods of Asheville, North Carolina. This gives the music an organic quality that isn’t often found in electronic music.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to turn down the lights, pour myself a glass of wine, and get lost in Koresma’s “Divine” version all over again. Because giving in to the healing power of great music is sometimes the best way to take care of yourself.
