The great thing about electronic music, is that it can take an already loved song and transform it; reaching out to new fans who will now discover both the original artist and the remixer. One such example, is the latest remix from Peer Kusiv who took British singer-songwriter Chantitown‘s track ‘Cause and the Cure’ and transported it to the dance floor. Lifted from Chantitown’s upcoming remix EP which is scheduled for release on the 25th of January; the track is but a single track of the 5-track EP which also sees a remix from Manuel Tur.
British singer-songwriter and producer Chantitown released her debut EP Cause And The Cure independently. The EP was co-produced and co-composed with Jim Hustwit (Universal Music, National Theatre, Almeida Theatre) who also holds credit as People’s Music Award Film and Music Composer. Following the introductory single and title-track from the upcoming EP, Chantitown’s latest, “Mother Of Sun” was mixed and mastered by reputable engineer Chris Coulter, who has worked with well-respected artists such as Dan Austin (Ocean Size, Pixies), Scott Harding (Wu Tang Clan, New Kingdom), Pip Williams (Status Quo), Rupert Christie (U2 / Green Day) and more. The single also includes notable percussionist Paul Clarvis who has worked with musical greats such as Mick Jagger, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder and Sir Paul McCartney, to name but a few.
Peer Kusiv’s rendition of Chantitown’s ‘Cause and the Cure’, takes the sombre track and adds a steady deep-house beat to it. Keeping most of the original instrumentation, this new version is sure to keep beach parties bouncing as you can’t help but envision a cocktail in hand while bouncing with your feet in the sand to this track.
