BBC Sound of 2018 announced their nominees for their long list less than a day ago, and I can’t be happier with many of their picks. Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi has been selected to the hallowed roster, and we wholeheartedly agree with the choice. His remarkable voice is exceptionally moving, as is the raw authenticity and sheer power of his soulful alt music. As such, it makes perfect sense that a remix by Toronto producer and musician Tep No would be very fruitful, too. After all, Tep No’s creations are always deeply affecting. He tugs at our heart strings once again with a surprisingly propulsive remix of Lewis Capaldi’s Fade. It’s as if he’s plucking gently at them during the edit’s more chill melodic moments, then stretching them to breaking point with electrifying swells and his synth shimmering melodic bass ridges. Fade does exactly the opposite of its namesake. It leaves a timeless imprint on us even as we turn around and expose ourselves to its breathtaking crescendos and heartfelt furrows once again.
