A gorgeous spin of Sly5thAve and Denitia's "C-Side", this remix by Hemai is an exciting journey, full of surprises.
The 22-year-old Birmingham-born multi-instrumentalist/producer crafted a stunning new version, around the vocals of the original. Combining dynamic percussion, soulful chords and lush synths, Hemai granted us a seducing groovy jam, which bridges past and future sound coordinates. He creates a new beautiful setting that matches the topic of the original track - the battle for human connection in the age of technology. Hemai elaborates:
It instantly stood out to me as a stand-alone track; Sly’s already magical production with Denitia’s smooth but powerful vocal… It was so much fun to rework.
The track is part of C-Side feat. Denitia (Hemai Remix) / With You feat. Denitia (Ash Walker Remix), out via Tru Thoughts, and is the latest series of reworkings of tracks taken from Sly5thAve’s critically acclaimed album What It Is. Alongside the original “C-Side" and Hemai's reimagination of it, the release features Ash Walker's remix of "With You" and vocal, lyrical and musical stylings from Denitia:
