Qrion Reinvents Skylar Spence’s “Affairs”

The Japanese producer transforms the track into a moody half-time cut.

October 14, 2015

Japanese producer Qrion (who did a beautiful FADER mix for us last winter) shares her remix of disco wonder-boy Skylar Spence's "Affairs," off his recent album Prom King. The original is an uptempo number featuring '80s drums and up-front bass, while Qrion opts for a more synth-laden approach with a half-time feel.

"'Affairs' is the song on Prom King I hold nearest and dearest, and I was so stoked to hand it over to one of my favorite producers," Skylar Spence told The FADER via email. "Everything that Qrion has touched this year turned to gold, and her spin on 'Affairs' is spellbinding, easily one of my favorite remixes of the year (biased as I may be)." Listen below, and check out our interview with Spence from this summer.
