Basecamp 'Emmanuel’ (Hayden James Remix)
Hayden James has delivered a crisp rendition of Basecamp track ‘Emmanuel’ with a good dose of synth and intricate percussion.
Basecamp is three producers from Nashville (Aaron Miller, Aaron C. Harmon and Jordan Reyes). Miller takes on the vocal duties and they form the core of the original – super soulful reminding me of James Blake, or even Lewis of Sydney’s Movement.
Hayden James partially distorts the vocals but does not lose their lush quality. The remix also livens up the original, picking up the pace halfway through. Despite the chilled mood, if you listen closely there’s actually a lot going on.
For the sake of even more name dropping, fans of Banks and Jai Paul will appreciate the melancholy tinge and heavy bass undertones. And be sure to listen to it in its entirety right up to that fade filtering out at the end.
