Gabrielle Aplin – Please Don’t Say You Love Me (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Couple of exciting bits of Cyril Hahn news for ya; a new tune and the chance to hear it live!

His latest rework, this time of festive troubadour Gabrielle Aplin (her version of ‘The Power of Love’ soundtracked John Lewis’s latest brain-washer), continues in the same vein as previous successes. Cyril brings his urgent, melodic feel to the tune, infusing it with “a dreamy sense of nostalgia”, as i-D Magazine put it.

For something a little meatier, check out his recent mini-mix for Rob da Bank on Radio One too:

And, as tipped on these pages last month, Cyril has now announced dates for his European tour in February/March of this year. These will sell out before you can Say My Name so get yourselves signed up for the announcement ASAP. Do that HERE.

HAIM – Don’t Save Me (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Another fresh one from our man in Vancouver, Cyril Hahn. This time he’s taken on the genre-clash sisters, Haim:
It’s a bit livelier, this one. Shades of some of our favourite mid noughties jump-up electro, without losing Cyril’s signature flow. Plus, for all our UK readers, we hear he’ll be round these parts in February/March so keep your eyes peeled for that. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
And, for a bonus point, here’s a sensual, RnB heavy mix he did for Gotta Dance Dirty last month, chockablock with tunes. The interview with it ain’t bad either; Worst thing about Canada? “Good cheese is way too expensive here…”

Alpines – Chances (Cyril Hahn Remix)

It’s getting silly now.

Our excessive man crush on Cyril Hahn is set to continue after we stumbled across another beauty. Cyril is Switzerland born-and-raised (but Canada is where he now spends most of his days), and we’re going to go out on a limb and say he is the finest Swiss-Canadian producer in the business right now.

On this track he has torn his attention from the Knowles sisters for long enough to tweak ‘Chances‘ by London-based new kids on the block (and HD favourites) Alpines.

The result is wonderful. Not only does it retain the brilliance of the original but Hahn brings to it the same atmospheric vibe that is such a hallmark of his other reworks. More please.

Solange – Losing You (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Having blown us away with his remix of Destiny Child’s ‘Say My Name’ last month, Cyril Hahn has now done the business on the pop tune of the moment; ‘Losing You’ by the lovely Solange. There’s a joke here about Cyril working his magic on the Knowles sisters but we’re not making it. Nope.

By stripping away some of the punchiness but retaining its warmth, Hahn has created yet another piece of music made for repetition. Remind yourself of the brilliant original and check out Hahn’s edit below, top stuff.

Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Cyril Hahn knows what he’s doing. And that’s making some fine music, and giving it away. His remix of Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’, and to call it a remix is doing it a disservice – it’s a beauty in its own right, has been doing the rounds recently and it deserves to reach as many ears as possible. Millions, possibly billions of ears:

He claims he’d been listening to, “a lot of new house music such as Fort RomeauDisclosure, Octo Octa, Kidnap Kid etc” when putting it together (great choices, if we say so ourselves…) and it comes through in the tune. Some serious “sensual codeine vibes”* underpinned by a bouncy, catchy drum beat.

If you’d like something a little longer, his ‘End of Summer mixtape’ is tip-top too, featuring HD faves such as Ryan HemsworthGiraffage and Jacques Green:

Keep doin’ what you’re doin’ Cyril.

*Thanks to Et Musique Pour Tous for the quotes. And for generally being great.
