Japan-born London-based singer and songwriter Rina Sawayama recently released ‘Cyber Stockholm Syndrome,’ the first single taken from her upcoming album, due later this year. The song just got an excellent Nite Jewel‘s flip, bringing the slow R&B jam from the abysses of the internet to the dancefloor madness.
Produced by Hoost and Clarence Clarity, Rina Sawayama‘s ‘Cyber Stockholm Syndrome’ deals with her fascination of the internet, both as a source of inspiration and anxiety. The artist has actually developped a part of her music universe around this theme. With those two versions, the track eventually unveils its two sides: Rina‘s original version has an intimate vibe that fits with the feeling of virtual loneliness and anxiety while Nite Jewel‘s flip is expansive and extravagant, just like the internet can – often – be.
About this remix, Nite Jewel explained:
This new version is exactly what we like: adventurous sounds, obsessing and high pitched vocals, PC Music-inspired extravaganza, and BASS! The remix is available on a limited edition via The Vinyl Factory.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/328221090″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
