Toronto-based producer Michah has delivered a carefully crafted remix of CHINAH‘s superb debut single, “Away From Me”. The original track is a slow-burning tune that combines dreamy lyrics with a melodic chorus. Michah manages to pump up the single, without losing the beauty of the original melody. Using plenty of synths and a solid house rhythm, Michah delivers a track that is both smooth and invigorating. This remix feels particularly appropriate as hot summer days shift into cool autumn nights.
Beyond his own work, Michah is also part of a local music collective that features like-minded Toronto artists, including Coleman Hell, La+ch and Shan Vincent de Paul. The collective is called ‘Sideways’ and they tackle everything from songwriting, production, design and videos. The group strives to be innovative, while also targeting as large an audience as possible. Based on Michah’s early success, we’re likely to see big things from Sideways in the near future.
The intoxicating remix is currently available for free download via Michah’s Soundcloud page. Stream CHINAH’s original mix of “Away From Me” below.
