Black Atlass – Castles (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)
18-year old singer/songwriter Black Atlass gets a remix treatment from hotly-tipped fellow Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth for the first single from his self-released debut EP Black Atlass. Helmed among the music industry's best-kept secrets and most promising new voices of pop/R&B by the likes of Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Holy Other, James Blake and others, the precocious artist introduced himself to the world with an extremely accomplished first project that has music critics and fans eagerly awaiting his next move. With a mix of live instrumentation played entirely by himself blended with samples and filters showcasing incredible potential for a songwriter his age, it wasn't long before the buzz about Black Atlass reached beyond his hometown of London, Ontario. Upon hearing the Black Atlass EP, Hemsworth set his sights on "Castles" for a remix and today the song is up for free download. Reworking the melody into a hyptonic loop layered with snares and fading synths, he progressively isolates the vocals. Check it out below.
