It’s a Lush New Alt-Pop Take from the Rising Norwegian Producer
Fresh from collecting a Norwegian Grammy – Producer Niilas has stepped up to remixing duties for fellow Norwegian Metteson’s new single ‘Harder’. A collaboration born out of a Nordic love for analogue synths and big electronic productions, Niilas takes the original in a new direction with a two-step drum pattern and lush synth pads.
The single originally was released in October 2020. The original track is produced by Vetle Junker (Aurora) and as the original track, this remix is also mastered by Matias Tellez (Girl in Red, boy pablo). The new version takes the track in a totally new direction, utilising the emphatic vocal line.
Remixing tracks like these, with powerful and huge vocals are always fun! It gives a platform for precisely pinning down the feelings that are already conveyed through the song, a dream for remixing! On this remix I really tried to focus on the light-footedness of house music, combined with the iconic 80’s vocals that shine throughout the track. The result is a remix i’m personally very happy with, and a perfect fit for the spring! . - Niilas
