Listen: Elizabeth Rose - Another Earth (HWLS Remix)

HWLS take a track from a bright upbeat "day" to an elegant, seductive "night".

Fair to say HWLS made quite the impression Friday just gone with his closing set at the Bakery for Pilerats’ sold-out At the Pile gig. Perth producer Justin Elwin (who performs HWLS sets live, playing tracks he’s created in collaboration with Ta-Ku) demonstrated a remarkable progression from his work as Kit Pop – revealing a mature and future-forward side of his production self – and getting a full ‘floor of bodies moving in the process. Today, HWLS share a remix of Sydney singer Elizabeth Rose's latest single, Another Earth (the track's off her much-anticipated debut LP, that's set to appear sometime later this year).

HWLS really pulls this one off – utilising a moody, muffled bass throughline to create the perfect contrasting backdrop to Elizabeth’s bright, crystalline vocals. While the original, produced by Chrome Sparks, jumps straight into a thumping electronic upbeat, HWLS’ version sees the producers craft a extended introduction, driven by some elegant keys work, with the keys re-entering later in the piece. They've done well to turn an original that was electro / funky / dancey, into a work that's smooth, sophisticated and compelling - they've essentially taken things from day, to night. My preference is for the latter. Keep ‘em coming, HWLS.
