The original song dropped back in mid-April and showcased Joji’s rising star power through chaotic jump cuts to match the uptempo energy of the instrumentation. The emotional ending found the singer-songwriter escaping the planetary orbit as a rogue astronaut. His melodic singing was soft and heartfelt. On the Channel Tres-helmed remix, the producer (who was recently featured in our latest installment of New Gen: Spring 2020) adds a glossy finish with hypnotizing vocal filters and some new drums to transform the track into a dance record.
“I tried to make the remix soft and sensual, like something on a smooth jazz radio station that you could still use in a DJ set,” Channel Tres detailed. Meanwhile, Joji summed up the remix in one sentence. “It makes me tingly.”
