TUNE SK Shlomo - The First Time (Simon Lyon DnB Remix)
Manchester based producer and Ableton Jedi Simon Lyons has worked with big name fans from Happy Mondays and MC Tonn Piper (Andy C, Roni Size) to Jon Hopkins, Leon Vynehall, Rudimental and Bipolar Sunshine. His banging ‘Sly Madchester’ remix of Welsh rising star Rachel K Collier’s ‘Poison’ caught the ears of award-winning beatboxer turned electronic singer-songwriter SK Shlomo who, after collaborating with Bjork, Ed Sheeran and Jarvis Cocker is now going solo.
SK Shlomo immediately asked Simon Lyon to remix his newest single ‘The First Time’. The resulting remix is a rip-roaringly moving, mind-blowingly cinematic journey, darting from emotional film-score to ear-melting drum n bass breaks, retaining the intrigue with innovative half/double time interplay along the way.
Simon Lyon says: “Building on Shlomo’s already strong melodic vocal, I took the subtle Eastern vibe and used the teasing drum break as a catalyst to push the tempo into drum ‘n’ bass territory.” SK Shlomo says “When I first heard Simon’s remix I was in the car, and I thought the speakers were going to melt - there’s an intelligence to the forward-thinking drum n bass sound which encapsulates the darkness of my original song but cranks the energy off the scale.”
