Canadian singer-songwriter/producer Grimes, aka Claire Boucher, the electro-pop dance queen who broke out in 2012 has always mesmerized me. She’s one of those all-around artistic talents who is deeply involved in all aspects of everything she releases from videos and art to the engineering of the music itself.
It’s to our delight that Dublin-born producer EMBRZ has chosen to remix “Realiti” from her 2015 album Art Angels. He’s taken the 80s-inspired indie-dance tune and beefed it up into a deep, rich, future-friendly house number. With pumping synth and side chain, EMBRZ has shown what he loves to do production-wise when it comes to remixes: create a driving danceable track that showcases forward thinking sound design while still preserving the essence of the original track.
