Goodbye XVII: Vincent reintroduces himself with stunning remix of Alessia Cara’s ‘Here’
Alessia Cara has laid the perfect groundwork for some excellent remixes on “Here.” The budding Canadian star has put together a slow-but-steady debut behind her lead single, nailing pop and R&B elements to a smart, sassy framework. Now rising electronic producer Vincent is rising to the challenge, offering his take on Alessia Cara’s original piece.
Shedding XVII and reinventing himself behind a new moniker, Vincent turns Alessia Cara’s vocals and piano work into a sharp futuristic trap selection that stumbles and staggers around bits and pieces from the original. Clicky snare hits accent the remaining versework and layered claps and bold piano key strokes introduce boisterous, airy breaks. Following up a remix of Drake and Meek Mill’s “R.I.C.O.,” this time the name may be new, but Vincent’s production style continues to tighten as he procures another aced trap offering on his latest remix.
