We are excited to premiere a funky remix of Harts’ tune “Peculiar" by Opiuo, the talented New Zealander living in Australia. Singer-songwriter Harts has had huge success with his debut album Smoke Fire Hope Desire. Opiuo is coming off his recent remix of GRiZ’s tune “PS GFY” and his announcement as direct support for Pretty Lights’ Episodic Tour. Now he’s lent his talents for a groovy remix of Harts’ lead single from the album: “Peculiar.”
Opiuo keeps the original’s disco-like vibes while infusing his own style. He uses funky basslines in between gritty synth bass and distorted samples. Opiuo makes quick work of Harts’ vocals, both chopping them up and overlaying the chorus from the original. A distant synth arpeggio comes to the forefront for a bridge as the energy builds back up for a final upbeat breakdown and outro. Check out the remix below, keep an eye out for more from Opiuo and Harts, and enjoy!
