London-based electronic duo Eli & Fur have reworked Tensnake’s latest single ‘Somebody Else’ feat. Boy Matthews.
Out now via Armada Music, the remix opt for a deep, melodic version of ‘Somebody Else’ that preserves the original dancefloor energy, allowing Matthew’s key vocals to shine through.
“Somebody Else” is probably my favourite song on the album. When Boy Matthews and I met in Los Angeles we instantly got along and the songwriting came very naturally together. I’d say it is also the song which reminds me the most of my time in Los Angeles; this city has such a nostalgic feel and I tried to capture that vibe in this song. There is a fair bit of retro style to the instrumental, but in combination with the modern vocals it sounds very fresh to me,” Tensnake said about the original track.
Eli & Fur added: “It’s been great to be part of this release. We have been fans of Tensnake for a while now and have worked with Boy Mathews before who’s voice and songwriting we love. When we took on the remix we wanted to make something darker and suited to the club, something we could play in our sets that was high energy but still kept the emotion of the vocal melody which we love. So far we have only been able to play it on live streams but can’t wait to test it out in a big space.”
