Feral – “Go” + Niia – “BODY (Feral Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Feral is a New York-based producer who makes disorienting, glitch-y dance tracks deeply indebted to the hip-hop production stylings of his home city. Feral dropped the single “Go” last week, a purely cathartic dance track that relies on some light sampling to propel the propulsive song into moments of blissful hesitancy. Now you can hear his remix of electro-jazz singer Niia’s song “Body,” off her forthcoming EP, Generation Blue, which will be out at the end of the month. In his remix, Feral breaks down and distorts introductory piano chords without interfering with Niia’s vocals. His carefully tailored alterations are practically imperceptible in the moments leading up to the chorus, when all of the grace from Niia’s hypnotic vocals fall out of line to make room for a floor rattling drop. Listen to both songs below.
