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.
