Oceaán caught our attention earlier this year with the smooth and silky ‘Need U’. Now the Manchester producer delivers a delicate remix of ‘Darkest Place’ by electronic minimalists, Woman’s Hour.
There is a real sense of partnership in Oceaán’s reworking of ‘Darkest Place’; Fiona Burgess’ naked vocals swim fluidly between “Oliver Cean”‘s soulful hums. Finger snaps build to scurrying rhythms and harmonies glint in the background.
What is so attractive about the remix is that the original is instantly recognisable – just kissed with a new warmth – likely found basking in clubbers’ afterglow or accompanying late-night drives.
