Hello and welcome to one of the very first Howl & Echoes premieres!
Today I’m excited to share with you a gorgeous remix of The One, an emotional tune that’s been stuck in my head for a few months now.
Wolf Colony is an anonymous artist based in New York who has been collaborating with producer Neal Sarin since 2012. Known for his relatively simple arrangements, he weaves musical bare essentials with intimate lyrics. The vibrant melody is velvety rich, complemented by charming yet sparse instrumentation. There’s something really genuine and heartfelt about it, and it really just puts a smile on your face.
Watch the video clip, inspired by photo series Humans of New York, here:
And now, ladies and gentlemen, ’tis time for the remix premiere. Ready for something completely different?
The duo responsible are LA-based TWiN SCALE, or Sean & Steven Jeria. That’s right, they’re brothers! The pair usually release music as solo acts – listen to Sean’s beautiful Odesza remix here, and Steven’s (who releases tunes under the name AWRY) trippy trappy tunes here.
Combining glitch with ambience, organic with electronic, this is an eerie but lovely remix. Future beats, synth trickles, delayed rhythms and shifted vocals place the original tune in a completely different atmosphere, and the results are really interesting. Each phrase and layer brings something new to the remix, forever keeping you on your toes, wondering what’s coming next!
Wolf Colony is set to release his debut album, Unmasked, later this year.
