Si*Sé “This Love” – Hird Remix

remixcover_smTo follow the Crystal Pharoah Remix of Si*Sé‘s “This Love,” we have a new remix by Hird, best known for his album Moving On with Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon). This track is on the mellow side of house, but the driving instrumentation makes it great for the dance floor. It has elements of breakbeat in the verses, undulated bass lines, and subtle touches of jazz.

Si*Sé‘s EP, Gold, comes out next week on March 9th.

Finally, things seem to be coming together, so we are eagerly anticipating new music any day now. If “In this World” is any indication, it will be worth the wait.
