The story of this rework:
Nils Released his 'Screws' album in 2012 and it was the first time I had heard of him as an artist. When the 'Screws Reworked' project started I was naturally keen to get involved! At the time I was focussed on making glitchy ambient music and so did a remix in that style.
Since then I have started to sing a lot more and write songs. In the summer of 2014 I got a fantastic opportunity to play one of my songs onstage alongside Nils at an informal concert in Berlin. It was a really amazing moment for me and as a way of paying tribute and saying thank you I wanted to compose a new rework, this time as a song.
I often enjoy singing vocal melodies to myself over instrumental music, and one melody in particular kept coming back to me when listening to the track 'Si'. I took that melody and with a little bit of looping, re-arrangement and some granular magic I arrived at this song. I hope you enjoy it!
