Following on from the successful single release earlier this year, “When Your Heart Is A Stranger” from rising duo Friends In Paris has just had the remix treatment. A pair of equally captivating edits has been created by FLYES and FAISAL respectively and is coming out via Sony Music Belgium.
The weightily treading FLYES rework couldn’t be more gloriously textured and seeps through the speakers with its languid electronic beats and heavy, draped vocals. There is a dynamic climax midway through as its rhythmical essence takes over, before introducing stunning piano work to create dramatic contrast.
FAISAL opts for a hazier vibe, going for strikes of melody and an off-kilter, almost trippy vibe. Those strains of vocals melt over the top of guitar peels and subtle 808s, crafting a hip-hop inspired sound that is utterly irresistible.
Both remixes here couldn’t be more diverse, but they are united in their super sharp production and innovative ideas – bringing fresh joy to the superb “When Your Heart Is A Stranger”.
