Honey Dijon remixes Alewya’s debut single, ‘Sweating’
In May, Alewya announced herself to the music world with her feature on burgeoning star Little Simz’ latest EP, Drop 6. Promptly after, the UK-based producer (pictured above) shared her debut single “Sweating,” a sultry dance track powered by Alewya’s catchy flow. Now, “Sweating” receives the full remix package treatment courtesy of fellow UK-based producer Honey Dijon.
In her remix, Honey Dijon strips away the original’s syncopated rhythm in favor of a classic four-on-the-floor house style. Additionally, a bouncy bass line compliments the accelerated tempo in the remix and dub mix. All in all, Alewya’s original slow burning “Sweating” is transformed into a dancefloor house heater that, in Honey Dijon’s words, is “Black Girl Magic at it’s finest. The future is female!”

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
