On of our favourite young buddying producers, Blakkheart is back with a fresh new single as she revisit’s The Art Crimes Band’s track, ‘A Guy Like You’. Blakkheart has provided a reverb fuelled 90s flavoured electronic remix of The Art Crimes Band’s funky original.
Blakkheart for those of you who are unaware is a young and exiting Irish producer, Blakkheart is adamant on putting her own stamp on her production and doing things her way. The versatile and multifaceted producer, encompasses production, audio engineering and vocals as a basis of her creation. She works from her plant emporium home studio/library – and operates as a music producer, vocalist and audio engineer to a variety of international artists. She has also composed the theme song for the hit podcast Friends of Dorothy (guests include Rose McGowan, Mara Wilson and more). A truly multifaceted artist in process, creation and content.
Her next collaboration sees her remix The Art Crimes Band. The band were founded in 2011 and hailing from Cork City, Ireland and USA, The Art Crimes Band signed to the Californian based SUGO Music record label in 2014 and launched their debut album of original material entitled ‘Radio’ at the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival in 2015. Attracted to many styles and influences it’s not unusual for the group to pay tribute on stage to and draw from the well waters of such luminaries as Sting, Erykah Badu, Hall & Oates, Eric Clapton, Etta James, David Bowie, Rev. Al Green, Nikka Costa, Gregory Porter, The Roots & John Legend, while staying true to their band credo; “leave your ego, play the music, love the people”. Which is something we can totally get behind.
The Art Crimes Band’s sensuous soul-infused track “Guy Like You” gets a reverb-heavy electronic remix in the style of the 1990s/early 2000s. Faithless, Aphex Twin, Madonna, and Kaytranda were big inspirations for this remix, which has lush electronic textures and pulsating sub bass to transport you back to the late 1990s.
