Following the release of their self-titled debut album in January of this year, London’s Snowpoet are preparing to release a remix EP due out December 2. It’s a beautiful alt-folk record, so today we’re delighted to bring you the first listen of the “Little Moon Man” edit by fellow British producer Jeevan Rai.
Snowpoet aspire to bring melody, form and poetry to a new setting. Comprised of vocalist Lauren Kinsella and composer Chris Hyson, together the duo create beautifully intricate, jazz-tinged and textured melodies that naturally lend themselves to a nuanced re-rendering from dexterous producers.
Jeevan Rai, a so-called laptop musician is one of them, applying bright synths, ethereal vocal loops and masterful layering to the original to create a complex and resonate rework. Currently completing a doctoral thesis on topological representations of computer music, Rai is clearly not one to rest on his laptop laurels as he endeavors to explore a spacious and neoteric sound.
The remix package — which closes out a stellar year for Snowpoet will feature other reworks by Jauge, Jeevan Rai and Vaun. Hear the magnetic “Little Moon Man” mix below.
