Sia “Chandelier” (BASECAMP Remix)
Last year BASECAMP introduced themselves to the world with “Emmanuel,” a gorgeous and eclectic slice of R&B infused dance music that premiered with FACT Magazine. The response for “Emmanuel” was overwhelming, garnering praise from online publications like This is Fake DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Earmilk, and Indie Shuffle. The Nashville newcomers quickly followed up this strong debut with a FREE DOWNLOAD of their self-titled EP. Where “Emmanuel” left off, “2 Thingz”, “Rydia”, and “Smoke Filled Lungs” quickly picks up. Seductive vocals with an irresistible R&B timbre reminiscent of James Blake or SBTRKT’s Sampha coalesce with seemingly incongruous musical textures and chords to create beautiful tension in all four tracks of the EP. The trio followed up the release of their EP with a slew of remixes from names such as Hayden James, Artful Dodger, Blacksmif, STWO, Joe Hertz, Blackedout, and Them Jeans.
But it doesn’t stop there. Today BASECAMP shares a delicious remix of Sia’s buzzworthy single “Chandelier.” Their rework twists and turns in unexpected ways, giving the track a syncopated R&B bounce while still letting Sia’s soaring vocals shine through. According to the band, “we’ve been fans of Sia ever since the early Zero 7 stuff she was on. Love her voice. When RCA asked us to do a remix, there wasn’t a second thought.”
