If you’re looking for something intergalactic to pump you up for the final bits of the weekend, Zephure’s going to rocket you right through the cosmos with his stunning remix of Pluto’s Nevve featuring Surface. The producer, who resides right here in the Bay in San Jose, first came to our attention with a magnificent edit of Bon Iver’s Holocene, which you can revisit below. This time around, he’s given Pluto’s Surface a synth swelling, beautifully evocative future bass makeover. Zephure’s remix is a free download, here.

Just the other day, I was taking a break from my usual blasting of albums in the car and tuning into Live 105′s HD2 radio station Indie 105 (which I highly recommend to anyone who can receive HD radio frequencies and loves indie/alt music), and Bon Iver’s Holocene came on. I’m a massive Bon Iver fan, as many likely know. I first fell in love with Justin Vernon’s work back in 2007. He nearly broke my heart with the stark beauty of For Emma, Forever Ago, an album which he reportedly wrote in the solitude of the Wisconsin woods. As such, when Bon Iver dropped their second album (Bon Iver), it took me a moment to get used to how much more rich and florid its tunes were, and as much as I deeply adore that album, my loyalty to this day lies most true to For Emma, Forever Ago. Yet, when I re-visited Holocene this week on the radio, I came to realize how much I truly love the song, and how incredible this Bon Iver journey has been. 

Anyway, to get to the heart of the matter, I’m reminded yet again of the aforementioned by an incredible remix of Holocene that surfaced on my radar lately by a producer from here in the Bay who goes by the moniker Zephure. The San Jose native, who’s currently studying computer science at the University of Michigan, reports that he’d rather be making music than sitting in a lecture hall. No wonder he feels that way, considering the ravishing edit he’s given Holocene. Bon Iver is no easy task to remix, and Zephure has transformed wistful aching Holocene into a brisk vacillating, wavy flickering future bass extravaganza, one that evokes a bit of Porter and a touch of k?d. Zephure’s Holocene feels as vast and wondrous as the original, if not more. Download his remix for free, here.
