Ok, so I was going through soundcloud earlier and even though I had heard of the Warner Music Group X Earmilk X Wavo remix competition, none of the remixes I came across was really cutting it for me (Hostage’s one being the lesser evil).
This is IT though. I’m glad I got to know these guys through the release of Hesk and Paveun’s Exclusives EP, because RAW Records owners Dear Lola and Thomas White are really on top of their production game with this one. They completely flipped the original, blending orchestral elements with smooth jazz instrumentation and big popping trap drums. In my opinion this is not only the best remix competition submission, but one of the best tracks to have come out so far this year, with production values equaling those of the greatest such as Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke.
I also included in this article a link to their latest collab (from which their sound seems to have evolved) called SWRVN:
