Dirty Loops Remake of ‘Over the Horizon’ Comes to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edgeShare open/close
Starting with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, the 2016 version of “Over the Horizon”, a Samsung Galaxy brand sound, is coming to this year’s Galaxy devices. And thanks to Swedish jazz-funk outfit Dirty Loops it’s the danciest, poppiest version yet.
Now, users of new Galaxy devices can select this new interpretation of “Over the Horizon” as their ringer or alarm.
The sound is as playful and adventurous as Dirty Loops—and as creative and full of potential as the latest lineup additions to the Galaxy family.
Users can also listen to it in full via the device’s Music app. If you simply cannot wait, you can check out the new version of “Over the Horizon” here:
Galaxy users may be familiar with the six timeless “Over the Horizon” notes. But although the latest version remains recognizable, it is at the same time very different. This time around, drums rattle and horns flare, and are followed by a soft, syncopated piano. The final result is a unique reinterpretation of a sound that has defined Galaxy devices for the past six years.
In addition, for the first time, Samsung’s iconic theme has gotten a few lyrics, as Dirty Loops singer Jonah Nilsson calls out: “create the future,” “inspired” and, of course, “over the horizon.” The group also added solos for keyboard, drums, horns and bass, further enriching its upbeat version.
Dirty Loops has won critical praise for its jazz and funk inspired pop since 2008, when Henrik Linder, Aron Mellergardh and Jonah first formed the group. Its creative re-imagining of big pop hits got tongues wagging in the music world, and the debut album Loopified was released in 2014.
