Walk Away (Kerfo Remix)- Anthony Touma Remix Competition

Hi guys!

Thank you very much for the opportunity to remix Anthony Touma's track, this was a really open remix brief which is great.

I wanted to try and make something that would work in the club to make people dance, but also work on the radio.
I have ended up producing a melodic trap/future bass remix of the song ensuring the original vocal hooks are still centrepiece throughout. The dancing sections are punctuated by powerful yet spaced out kicks and snares with a few glitchy production additions & drum fills in between hits for some 'ear candy'. The role of the top line is taken on by 2 different vowels from the original vocal that have been chopped, processed and then re-pitched to create a contemporary melody which is spread wide in the mix along with the accompanying gritty synths to allow the drums to really come through the centre. You'll also find a bit of Spanish guitar in there just for good measure!

All in all, a fantastic track and opportunity to remix this.
Thank you very much and I hope you enjoy what you hear!
All the best,

John
