French 17-year-old Petit Biscuit turned a lot of heads with down-tempo romance on “Sunset Lover,” and now, we revisit the hit with six fresh interpretations.
An official remix EP offers a bouquet of beautiful melodies, starting with the innocence of Seattle beat maker Manatee Commune’s light-hearted take. Parisian Clément Bazin chops the tune into something equal parts glitch funk and adorably future. Slow Hours, a group of six individual producers; Astre, Khamsin, Kidswaste, Kultur, Lain, and Rusty Hook; opens with cinematic strings and builds into a glitchy future house rhythm. Guitars add a bit of romance, synths add a touch of mystery and as the song unfolds the influence of each co-pilot leaves its mark.
Britain’s Daktyl lets his experimental hand fly up and down “Sunset Lover,” finding new nooks and crannies of sound to explore in the wildest take yet. Bearcubs incorporate electric harps and all manner of strange synthetic noise to tantalize your ear drums. The EP closes with an elongated, emotionally-pulling piece from OTR that really captures the “sunset” part of the romantic tune.
The six-track EP is out now Petit Biscuit Music. Enjoy it in full below:
