Cray adds new dimensions in her remix of Jai Wolf’s, ‘Lost’Cray

Only a few weeks after release “Fractions,” Cray has put her own touch on Jai Wolf‘s emotive release “Lost” featuring Chelsea Jade. “Lost” ended Jai Wolf’s 16-month hiatus from releasing music, and the indie electronic original features soothing vocals juxtaposed against a flowing electro backdrop that is an enchanting end to the producer’s silence.

Cray initially slows down the  BPM to focus on Jade’s vocals, leading the listener to believe that this remix would be anchored on melancholic vocal stretches with rather than being outrightly electronica in nature. However, Cray adds in a jolting twist with layers of euphoric electronic notes and an additional bassline that increases her version’s energy. She certainly adds a new dimension to the original.

Jai Wolf ends 16-month hiatus, unveils newest release, ‘Lost’Jai Wolf

After a 16-month hiatus, Sajeeb Saha, better known as Jai Wolf, returns with an original track “Lost” featuring Chelsea Jade. In 2017, the Bangladesh-born producer headlined his “Kindred Spirits” US tour, which included stellar performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and more. Fans have been hotly anticipating new content, and “Lost” proves well worth the wait.

The track rides a smooth beat and catchy vocals from Jade, fusing indie-electronic vibes with a new wave pop sound and impactful percussion arrangements. Saha shared a few words on the new original work,

“Chelsea and I wrote this song as sort of an anthem for a generation of kids who feel disillusioned by the world around them. Feeling lost is something that never necessarily goes away. Even when you might think you’ve found your way, your perspective might shift and you may feel lost again. This song is about that cycle and our desire to escape it. This song is also special to me because it is the perfect bridge between my old music and where I want to go next.”

Jai Wolf will support ODESZA on their headline tour this fall and with his return on “Lost,” it looks like more new material from Jai Wolf may be on the horizon.

DUCKY unleashes a new bootleg of Jai Wolf’s take on Kiiara’s ‘Feels’ [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

DUCKY has steadily released a string of singles that are causing ripples across the electronic music scene. The force behind her hypnotic warehouse-style productions is a sonic blend of melodic dubstep, future bass, and happy hardcore; and how she infuses each track with a unique energy from her deep love of rave culture.

The San Francisco-bred, Los Angeles-based producer has now made a statement as she takes a swing at Jai Wolf‘s remix of “Feels” by Kiiara. While doing well to hold onto Jai Wolf’s use of raw emotionality and melodic vocal chops, DUCKY speeds up the tempo of the track all the way up to the song’s first dub-inspired drop — here is where DUCKY’s production skills shine with heavy electric guitar synths and stabbing breaks. The short bootleg is the perfect addition to anyone’s pre-party playlist.

The track is also available for free download.

Kasbo delights on rework of Jai Wolf’s ‘Indian Summer,’ apart of the ‘Kindred Spirits Remixes’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

In 2015, then 23-year-old Jai Wolf – real name Sajeeb Saha – unleashed his immensely genre-challenging tune “Indian Summer.”

While Wolf’s original stands well on its own, if there was anyone put their spin on the track, few would do it the justice better than Swedish producer Kasbo. As such, Kasbo has done just that. He’s reimagined the euphoric number in the most elated tone imaginable. Kasbo ascends to the sonic heavens on his “Indian summer” rework, where he imbues its guitar chords and drums with pearlescent future-leaning nuance.

“Was an honor to remix Jai Wolf’s iconic song “Indian Summer.” Was challenging to make it my own cause I felt that the song was very much what it was supposed to be already. Ended up doing a few remixes, all of which were very similar to the original, but finally, I decided that I had to do something completely different, which became the final product…,” he said of the track.

Certainly, Kasbo inoculated the number with his own style, but his reworking’s impressiveness lies in the newfound variation’s ability to resist imposing on the track’s integrated integrity.

Kasbo quickly ascended in the indietronica ranks after touring alongside ODESZA in 2015. Since then he’s been riding on the coattails of his feel-good 2017 track “Found You, ” as well his more recent release via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. If its elegance serves as any indication, we can expect 2018 to be a prosperous year for the ever-rising producer.

Kasbo’s remix joins the work of Hotel Garuda, Robotaki, and others in the eight-track Kindred Spirits Remixes EP, which serves up new renditions of Jai Wolf’s album released in 2016.
