The 1975 – Somebody Else (EMBRZ Remix)
Downtempo darling EMBRZ is just as infatuated with The 1975 as we are. But instead of fangirling at their shows and dedicating a Tumblr page to Matt Healy’s irresistible pout, the 24-year-old Irish producer actually did something artistic about it. His remix of the band’s “Somebody Else,” which was released at the beginning of this month and quickly became the most popular track on Hype Machine, is a gorgeous ambient soundscape that makes a dance-worthy song even better to groove to.
“The 1975 are one of my favourite bands and I’m obsessed with the original track,” says the 24-year-old Irish producer. “I thought it would be cool to make a more danceable version, but still maintaining all the melodies and atmosphere of the original.” Healy’s vocals are chopped up and slightly distorted, making his words more of an instrument than a lyric in a way that we just can’t get enough of.
