Brooklyn-based record producer THE 83rd gets ready to drop a stirring remix of Eryn Allen Kane’s soulful yet minimalist track Have Mercy next month.
The rework opens with beautifully layered vocals which echo hauntingly into the resonant soundscapes and as with the original track, Eryn’s soulful vocals take centre stage. In its focused minimalism it drips with sonic emotion, bringing a new depth to an already striking track.
The accomplished producer, real name Will McNair, has produced for Cheryl Cole as well as produced, engineered and mixed Angel Haze’s hugely influential New York’ which received praise from The Guardian, Pitchfork, and VICE. He has been commissioned to make remixes for Missy Elliott and Mariah Carey, whilst his rework of Tinashe’s ‘Boss’ featured on a collaborative remix EP with Giraffage and Ryan Hemsworth.
As one half of electronic production duo Chopstix with Ski Beatz, who has worked with international stars including hip-hop heavyweights Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa and Jay Z, THE 83rd has also produced and remixed tracks by Nicole Wray, Cam’ron and Locksmith.
The remix Eryn’s Have Mercy is out on 12th February….for now, have a sample – it would be a crying shame to pass up on this epic track!
