Premiere: Mazde reworks RÜFÜS' Say A Prayer For Me into a slick future-bass banger
The remix follows up from the Stoney Roads signee's remix of Safia's Embracing Me, making it two from two.
Two acts we've been repping hard over the past few months, and rightly so, are German future-bass producer Mazde and Sweat It Out golden boys RÜFÜS, who very recently dropped their second full-length album Bloom. So naturally, we were pretty damn excited to hear that Mazde was prepping a remix for RÜFÜS' most recent single, Say A Prayer For Me (watch the official video for the single HERE). Say A Prayer For Me showed a softer, more blissful side of RÜFÜS in comparison to their previous singles, particularly Like An Animal and You Were Right, with building synth and percussion claps blending with an uplifting earworm of a hook courtesy of frontman Tyrone Lindqvist. The Mazde remix of the single manages to maintain this upbeat yet laid-back sound, all while completely changing the tone of the single to create something a tad more club friendly. After a stirring intro, in which Mazde layers Lindqvist's vocals over a sprawling percussion line, the single flips into future-bass mode, with a clean, synth-soaked drop you would expect from the Stoney Roads Records signee. Have a listen to the remix below, and stay tuned for more Say A Prayer For Me remix goodness coming up soon.
