Slick beat connoisseur 20syl is known for his organic style and brings that approach in his version of "Almeria". Adding fresh layers of vocals and slightly speeding up the work, 20syl chops up this version as raw and puzzling in the most clever way. The addition of Krystle Warren's vocals strengthen the present emotions in the track, bringing it back to a human scale and adding a textured soul. Lastly, Gaël Rakotondrabe adds a classic touch in his piano rendition of the work. Simple and strong, the keys speak softly to the heart and sing a dreamy lullaby.
"All the remix built itself around one central element from the original track: the piano. I tried to develop a new rhythmic identity around this sound increase the soul color while keeping a modern dynamic." - 20syl
