Ever since their debut in the electronic music scene in 2012, London-based duo Eli & Fur have been working to perfect their brand of deep house by melding electronic melodies and moody vocals, cultivating an infectious vibe that has reverberated around the globe.
Now they’re back with a moody, ethereal flip of German producer Tensnake’s “Somebody Else.” Part of a remix series of tracks from Tensnake’s album LA due out this summer, Eli & Fur’s remix features a first half marked by a smooth synth melody and soaring vocals which create that deep, dark vibe for which they’re known. The second features the 4/4 time signature that’s expected from a house tune, but the ladies have added some very aggressive kicks that bring the mood right back up. This is the type of track that has potential to be the closing track for many a set going forward.
Here’s what Eli & Fur had to say about this track:
It’s been great to be part of this release. We have been fans of Tensnake for a while now and have worked with Boy Mathews before who’s voice and songwriting we love. When we took on the remix we wanted to make something darker and suited to the club, something we could play in our sets that was high energy but still kept the emotion of the vocal melody which we love. So far we have only been able to play it on live streams but can’t wait to test it out in a big space.
The tune is out everywhere tomorrow, but we’re stoked to premiering it for you today. Listen exclusively below. Enjoy!
