This week the elusive producer Slinger returned with a sensual and electric remix of the English rock band Bastille’s single “Oblivion,” from their studio album All This Bad Blood. Slinger pairs a fast-paced break beat percussion and crunchy synth lines with Dan Smith’s angelic vocals. As the melody dissipates into oblivion, Dan’s vocals are isolated with minimalistic instrumentation bringing attention to the emotional and entrancing mood of the song. Slinger is no stranger to remixing prominent indie and r&b tracks. Some of his notable remixes include a dancy remix of “I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Prince, a salacious flip of Pharrel’s “Brand New,” and an energetic rework offellow Brits The Kooks “Around Town.” We don’t know much about Slinger but what we do know is that he does a damn good job at adding his signature house sound to some amazing tracks. Don’t sleep on this producer. You can get the Oblivion EP here and Bastille's All This Bad Blood album here.
