DA Premiere: Mackenzie Thoms – Conviction (Billy Presley Remix)
Mackenzie Thoms debut single, “Conviction,” topped Hype Machine back in mid August thanks to a killer top line and a NYLON mag premiere. The crooner’s hit is now being made over by another newcomer, Billy Presley. The Denver talent does well to represent his home base, blending genres and bass lines with the best of them. Modulated synths, dream jazz undertones, and a future tropical touch all work together to twist Mackenzie Thoms slow-brewed, self-reflective original into a sun-kissed jaunt through the fading summer season.
