Fwdslxsh Sneaks SWV Into Tinashe’s “Pretend”

Blast this subtle new remix from the London producer.

March 12, 2015

London producer Fwdslxsh doesn't crank too hard on his reimagining of Tinashe's Aquarius single "Pretend": he adds some thicker kicks and sparkling embellishments throughout, switching it up just enough to be considered a remix while retaining a strong and steady core. But the biggest treat might be in the last couple rounds of the hook, where he slips in chord progressions from SWV's "Rain" that are just as on brand as they are in key. Fwdslxsh's debut EP is streaming now, catch him on tour in Europe with the Huh, What & Where crew this Spring.
