Spectoral’s alt-RnB, future soul single, SWEET DEPRIVATION, gets a sweaty late night deep house make over by Sydney’s melodic lady, Pilot Darcy.
Tapping into a lengthy history as a producer and former career as electronic musician in the 90s (under the name of SiN and SiNthetic), Pilot Darcy applies some old school deep house tricks to the slow burner.
She says “I was so inspired by the original track I immediately wanted to grab the hooks and milk them for all they were worth. Andrew (Spectoral) sings with such a sexy voice so I wanted to make sure the remix still captured the passion and mood of his original song”.
Klaus Hill gave it his magic touch when mastering. Local Sydney DJ’s have likened the track to Blond:ish vs Deep Dish and local stations, including, Bondi Radio DJ’s are giving it a spin.
Spectoral (right) is stoked with the track as it comes off the back of a very busy 2017 releasing a number of singles and performing around his Melbourne hometown. Signed to Las Vegas micro label FVYDID, this is one track you’ll hear late at night when clubbing this summer.
Faye Blais carries the light of the sun’s rays everywhere she tours. Her generous Canadian soul harbours the love of the many people she meets on the road. Her poetic lyrics tell stories of humanity, emotion, challenge and strength. It was inevitable that I would remix one of her gorgeous songs and The Pursuit certainly grabbed my attention.
When I first heard The Pursuit I was enchanted by the imagery of the song as much as the vocals and backing vocals. Although only the main vocals made it to the remix, it wasn’t cos the other tracks were less than damn fine. I was compelled to paint an atmospheric picture that would move others, in a way that I felt when hearing this song. I wanted to transport it to lounge land, club floors, true. But I wanted to make sure the passion of the story was re-interpreted and not lost.
I am very proud to share this one and need to acknowledge not only Faye Blais (singer/songwriter) but my dear friend Blog Wars for exceptional and unique beats and Kor-B (City of Nine Gates) for production on the track.
Now, I’m happy to thank you (in advance) for your support in playing, sharing, downloading and commenting on the remix. It’s free and won’t cost you a cent!
Aussie indie-pop outfit Alpine released an awesome album last year. They managed to create a totally identifiable sound full of tight guitar riffs, strong soprano harmonies and completely addictive melodies.
While sitting on the bus and listening to one of my fave tracks”Hands” it occurred to me that there was lots of space and room to chop up this track and give it an after-life. So hope you enjoy this bootleg remix that’s a little dub, got lots of melody and has the usual Pilot Darcy cruising the clouds kinda feel.
