The weekend starter – better known as Rendition – returns with four more great remixes. As always, we have a range of remixes, as we’re not limiting ourselves to the EDM genre which can be heard anywhere. A remix that is sultry and smooth, like Astronomyy‘s rendition of Billie Eilish‘s “Ocean Eyes”, always will grab our attention. The original track is breathtaking and gorgeous, but Astronomyy adds slight changes, using the beats to further accentuate Eilish’s delicate vocals.

Remixes can also make a stunning song even more beautiful, but a producer must be able to show restraint. This is something that many artists are unable to master. Brooklyn producer JR Nelson, however, demonstrates this trait with his brilliant rendition of Andra Day‘s crushing, “Rise Up”. The original was a piano-driven ballad, but Nelson’s addition of ambient textures turns the track into an ethereal stunner. His remix will have you falling in love with the song all over again.

Remixes can sizzle without going overboard. Take 19-year old producer Chris Davies’ – a.k.a. Revive Us – rendition of Pixel Fix‘s “I Want You The Same”. Already a cool, groovy track, Davies doesn’t attempt to completely transform the track. Instead, he dabbles around the edges, adds a few Caribbean-influenced beats, and just allows the original melodies to flow.

Transformations, though, can be awesome. Take London producer Capracara‘s dazzling remix of Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch‘s “Strelka”. Levienaise-Farrouch is one of France’s rising pianists and composers, whose instrumental compositions are lavishing and intimate. Capracara retains the intimacy of the original but adds a club-feel with some brilliantly timed, percolating rhythms and beats. Capracara could have easily made this into another EDM track, but instead has opted to put together a song that retains the essence of Levienaise-Farrouch’s approach.

You can hear Levienaise-Farrouch‘s debut album, Like Water Through Sand, in its entirety on SoundCloud. It’s out via FatCat Records. It’s the perfect album for a quiet evening at home or one just to listen to in order to collect one’s thoughts.
