Listen: Ciara - Body Party (Asdasfr Bawd Remix) [Premiere]
Melbourne's Asdasfr Bawd brings the bounce with a new remix of Ciara's Body Party.
Asdasfr Bawd (pronounced ‘az-das-ah-fah bow-d’) is a Melbourne-based electronic producer we actually featured a few months ago when he released his brilliant Nobody/Love 2-track, drawing comparisons at the time to the likes of James Blake and Jamie xx. He's another artist on the ever-growing and always-intriguing Solitaire Recordings roster, and today sees the release of a new remix of Ciara's Body Party. The swelling synths and sparse percussion of the intro soon give away to a super fun, bouncing beat with Ciara's soothing R&B vocals over the top.
Asdasfr Bawd says of the remix: "I think every electronic producer has an obsession with R&B vocals - they just work so well when sampled. I found myself arranging the samples in repetitive patterns that I liked, and it just went from there".
Take a listen below, and catch him live at Good Manners Monthly #2 - August 20 at Boney in Melbourne, and featuring a bullshit-good lineup that includes Cleopold, Banoffee, Klo and more. Details HERE.
