We have a delightful exclusive remix for you today, from one half of East London Grime duo Makola, remixing Sian Cross‘s latest single “Gave Away”. On his remix, Pete H delivers a slightly more upbeat vibe, effortlessly feeling polished and raw at the same time, his remix is like “The Beauty and the Beast”, Sian’s vocal being the beauty and Pete’s dose of heavy bass and grimy elements being the beast, his offering amalgamates perfectly with Sian’s hypnotic vocal. Pete closed his brilliant remix with lush piano arrangements, anchoring a mesmerizing effect to his audience.
If you are not familiar with the name Pete H (Makola, PUZZLE), he is an up and coming bass music producer from London and recently got signed to Domino.
Makola have been featured many times BBC Radio 1xtra’s playlists over the last 2 years and got support from Radio 1’s DJ Target, Mistajam, Phil Taggart and Beats 1 DJ Julie Adenuga for their fresh take on the UK Grime and Hip Hop genres.
Quote from Pete H (Makola):
“This was a really fun remix to do, I really liked Sians amazing vocals and `Gave Away´ was such a good song, so all this gave me an excellent starting point. I added some more textures and a bit of more faster paced rhythms and urban flavour, which made the song feel a bit more up-tempo and dance-y.”
