Nneka first came to our attention when Chase & Status propelled her into the public eye by remixing her track ‘Heartbeat’ back in 2009. Now, just after the release of her new album ‘Soul Is Heavy’, her track ‘Shining Star‘ has been remixed by someone who may just propel her a little further.
Who better to give your work some nip and tuck than King Midas himself, Joe Goddard. Most of the things he’s done over the last 18 months have been nothing short of stellar. He has released a host of remixes, penned one of the biggest tunes of last year in ‘Gabriel’, produced consistent bangers with 2 Bears, and remained a key member of the Hot Chip crew.
This remix may be a sum total of 9 minutes and 2 seconds long. But bear (ahem) with it. Once you’re in, it’s absolutely stunning and could be a contender for our favourite tune of the year thus far. The accompanying army of percussion he’s embedded into this soulful pop tune turns it into an uplifting, pensive, progressive and perfect song. Enjoy.
