Last month, we posted “Tristeza,” a hay and perfectly lovely song from the Brooklyn singer and producer Lorely Rodriguez, who records as Empress Of. The song worked, more or less, as the centerpiece of Empress Of’s Systems EP. And now, Rodriguez has recruited a couple of important producers to give the song remixes befitting of a centerpiece. Rodriguez’s song is in Spanish, and both producers hail from Spain, which cannot be a coincidence. El Guincho has turned the song into a six-minute impressionist percussion riot, and Pional has transformed it into icy downtempo electro. Listen to both remixes below.
Systems is out now on Terrible.
