Dutch soul singer Bo Saris released ‘She’s On Fire’ this week, and it’s gained a lot of traction – even prompting Winehouse comparisons (albeit by his agency). It’s a breezy, brass-driven soul track which calls to mind the recent output of Cee Lo Green, Plan B and Mark Ronson (but it’s good).
Better, however, is Maya Jane Coles’ remix. London-based producer Coles has been a favourite of ours for some time and she excels herself here – with her deep, subtle house vibes giving the tune a completely different feel. It’s taut and compelling, and has the kind of uncomfortable eeriness that Nicolas Jaar has been perfecting of late.
Good video, too.
