ESTÈRE ‘Reptilian Journey (JORDAN RAKEI remix)’

Written by on September 21, 2015


Alt-beatmaker Estère releases a remix of ‘Reptilian Journey’, on Friday 25th September by acclaimed producer and soul musician Jordan Rakei. The remix creates a new species of Reptile, in that it transforms the sparse scuttling layers of Estère’s original creation, into chunkier synth infused funk alluding to a different type of Reptilian creature. Of the song Estère herself agrees that Jordan 

“changed Reptilian Journey from a twitching gecko into a flap necked chameleon.” “From the moment I heard it, it made me want to move- which is an automatic sign I’m reeeally feelin something,” says Estère.

Rakei’s version of ‘Reptilian Journey’ is one of four songs remixed off Estère’s debut album, that will be released digitally as a four track EP titled New Species, on Fri 25th September. New Species contains the creative imaginings of a variety of producers including alt prog-rock producer Grayson Gilmour, electronic beats producer Paddy Fred and new-wave pop-rock band Encouragement, as well as the aforementioned Jordan Rakei.
