Elin Bell – The Tide (The Land Below Remix)
Swedish newcomer Elin Bell recently made with her emotionally charged self-titled debut album, adding a new dimension of vocal prowess to her already ascending name on the Swedish circuit. Carrying only an acoustic version of “The Tide,” national peer Erik Linstad steps up to give the harrowing original an electronic injection without overbearing club intervention. Gradually drawing in the beats and unwinding a plethora of melodic swells and uneasy progressions, The Land Below’s latest remix dons the edge of the cinematic whilst tipping towards a more soulful and vivid take on the modern electornica sound. For all of Sweden’s fine contributions to the electronic dance spectrum, here’s a reminder that some of its finer offerings are still enroute to reaching to the spotlight.
