It’s pretty common for remixes to deliver more club-friendly versions of the songs being remixed, so what we have here is especially satisfying. Sylvan Esso’s “Hey Mami” (off their self-titled Album Of The Week debut) was already a pretty danceable song, so the duo enlisted the delightful chamber-pop outfit Landlady for an orchestral remix. Bass pulses are replaced by heavy horns, and Amelia Meath’s voice adapts to the sound just as well as it did with Nick Sanborn’s production on the original. Listen and download it below.
Sylvan Esso is out now via Partisan. Landlady’s Upright Behavior is out 7/15 via Hometapes.
