While I love Flume, I have grown to not expect much from the collaborative offshoot project What So Not with Emoh, despite my blind love for just about every release that comes off of their home label Future Classic. I have come, however to expect very much from Brooklyn’s Branchez and frankly have never been disappointed. In the remix pack that came out earlier today on OWSLA, What So Not’s “High You Are” gets a makeover from producers like SCNTST, Astronomar and others. Branchez remix, however, is the clear standout of the bunch. It’s a stark contrast to the original – which I found to be quite obnoxious at times – and is much more listener-friendly, pairing the beautiful vocals with a complementary soundtrack. It’s out on Beatport now and you can give it a listen below.
You may also remember Branchez incredible bootie of Rihanna‘s “Stay” – which even received support from the pop star herself. It’s a song that needs no introduction, so I’ll just leave it here for nostalgia purposes.
