London singer-songwriter Christa Vi makes a welcome return with, ‘Makeshift Happiness’, the first piece of material from her forthcoming debut album.
Some of you might remember Christa from ‘Your Heart’ which was remixed – quite magnificently we might add – by Show Your Shoe.
Well, today we’ve bagged the premiere of AMTRAC’s remix, his name seems to be appearing in all the right places at the moment; the Kentucky-born beat-master has remixed one of Alex Metric’s new tracks, and is going on tour with Gorgon City.
Whilst the original is a retro-fied slice of autumnal pop, AMTRAC tastefully reworks the original it into a swirling disco track with gleaming melodies, moody basslines and tougher percussion.
‘Makeshift Happiness’ is set for a September 25 release. The 4 track EP also includes a radio edit alongside the title track and remixes from AMTRAC and Small Pyramids.
