Having only been added to the Moving Castle Collective in March of this year, French producer/musician Astre has since seen waves of success, support, and synchronicity. His original track, "Shades" featuring rapper Kevin Blu released a mere 4 months ago; after well-received feedback from critics and music fans alike, Astre is passing along the track to various producers, musicians, and DJ's to allow their taste to re-shape and capitalize on the original. This particular remix comes from Pacific Northwest producer, Metsa and LA-based Madnap. The collaborative treatment is a down-tempo, charming piece with Eastern-world aromas that serve to emphasize Kevin Blu's accented rhymes. Intentionally more Lo-Fi than the OG single, this duo's flip yields a vintage expulsion while remaining true to the original notes. Its glitchy interludes are carefully placed and layered, heeding a head-nodding, introspective energy that sticks to each space later coming to fruition in the form of an elctro-R&B vision. This twosome tackled their flip with grace and confidence- a track to be revered and respect. Volume up.
