Arona Mane has funked up Paces' Guy Sebastian collab for your listening pleasure
Hailed by us as Australia's answer to Kaytranada, Arona Mane's latest remix is pure gold.
Between his genre-defying mixtape 2096: Retro/Future and his steamy, Kaytranada-esque remix of Nas' classic Ain't Hard To Tell, Arona Mane has become a producer we've fallen in love with multiple times this year, delivering every time with top-grade, future-funky originals and remixes. Likewise comes his newest offering, with the upcoming producer adding his old-school future-funk feel to Paces' highly-hyped Guy Sebastian collab Desert. Basing the remix around Guy's original vocals, Arona Mane's re-do of the track gives the single a newfound life and energy, with the vocals being joined by an addictive, bass-soaked production that again, brings up those major Kaytranada / POMO vibes that we initially fell in love with. Whilst it may be common knowledge that Paces' work always boasts that joyous, tropical-tinged summer production style, Arona Mane's remix craftily spins the track down a different route. It's not so much the 'on the beach having a beer with friends' sound you get from a Paces original like Desert, but more of a 'cruising down a coastal street in a convertible during a summer sunset' vibe, something which is pretty damn amazing considering 1) I don't have or have never ridden in a convertible and 2) it's the middle of bloody winter and it's cold as hell out. Listen to the track below.
