Jessie Ware is one of the most talked about British artists of the moment. Her debut gets its release on 20 August, following several strong singles released this year, and a spot featuring on SBTRKT’s debut last year.
Star Slinger is a Manchester-based producer and DJ. Volume I is his first LP, self-released in 2010, and it takes influences from instrumental hip-hop, chillwave, and R&B.
On this brilliant remix, Star Slinger has created an uptempo, 130bpm rework of Jessie Ware’s ‘Wildest Moments.’ Ghostly vocals open the track over a cowbell, before Ware’s voice comes in with a greater sense of urgency than the original. From a slow and lethargic ballad akin to Adele, Star Slinger has, with pitch bends and accelerated beats, instilled new life.
