RAGZ NORDSET | DON’T YOU FORGET - REMIXES

Posted on 12th August 2020 by Hayley Forrester

Check out these remixes of Ragz Nordset’s single ‘Don’t You Forget’

Following Ragz Nordset’s single ‘Don’t You Forget’ back in late May, our latest release features reimaginations of the captivating track from producers Mario Leal, and Drumwarp Guevarism.

‘Don’t You Forget’ was released in May 2020, the first recorded music the Norwegian chanteuse had shared in almost five years; a haunting and sparse piano and vocal track, recorded live at Liverpool’s iconic Parr Street Studios.

These brand new remixes take the original on an altogether different journey.

Usually working as a live touring engineer for the likes of John Grant, Everything Everything and Hot Chip, with 2020’s tours cancelled Mario Leal was afforded the time to produce this new remix. It’s a downtempo electronic excursion - transforming the original into a pulsating and genre-spanning synth-infused musical workout - deceptively simple yet deep, grounded and nostalgic.   

On a more psychedelic tip, Drumwarp & Guevarism’s remix is a bass-heavy trip, saturated in the Eastern scales.  The pair, associates of Greg Wilson’s ‘Super Weird Substance’ label and the Keep It Cryptic underground parties, have produced a collaborative remix, where Drumwarp’s visceral rhythms meet Guevarism's psychedelic musicianship.

With sonic echoes of Ragz’ native Scandinavia; glacial undertones contrast the eclectic productions; exploring and complementing Ragz’ visceral and emotive vocal.   

“I believe good songs are born when you feel the melody in and on your skin, and when the words become bridges rather than barriers.  This song was written in the midst of the throws of deep hurt and just as the cracks of longstanding denial started opening. It represents a milestone in my own life and in my writing.
Ragz Nordset, May 2020, on ‘Don’t You Forget’.
