Title: Golden Skies (Henrik Villard Remix)
Cat. #: BS250-5
Release Date: 29th April 2022
Feel-good Oslo house mainstay Henrik Villard returns to Beatservice with a dazzling new remix of Kohib’s track, ‘Golden Skies’.
Featuring the powerful vocals of Lydia Waits gliding over icy pads and subterranean bass, the hypnotic original version of ‘Golden Skies’ was the latest in a long line of recent successes for Kohib. As such, the label felt it ripe for a remix so looked to rising star Henrik Villard for a unique interpretation.
Emerging talent Villard is forging a fine reputation for his tight, house-flavored productions. From deep, heads-down grooves to stirring club house, he can do it all. The Oslo-based DJ and producer has released on labels including Mhost Likely, The Basement Discos, and House Cookin’ Records among many others.
Here he builds on the bittersweet quality of Waits’ yearning vocal and adds his own dreamy chords, atmospheric pads and thick, club-ready bass. Weaving in and out for the duration is scintillating instrumentation while the slick drum groove takes the track ever deeper into the dance floor.
This club-ready remix breathes new life into an already bewitching track while further cementing Villard’s reputation as an artist to watch in 2022.
