Ricahrd Spaven - Faded ft. Jordan Rakei (Sandunes Remix)

Richard Spaven blew us away with his track ‘Faded’, followed by the stunning ‘Real Time’ album last year released on his Fine Line Records imprint.

Seven months on and the wonderful track gets a beautifully crafted treatment from Indian electronica artist Sandunes and an ambient strings arrangement from composer/violist John Metcalfe. Our pick is Sandunes wonderful reworking.

Earlier this year Spaven and Sandunes performed a run of shows in New Delhi and Mumbai where they re-imagined each other’s work.

The collaboration between the pair in India meant that there was an opportunity for Spaven to record new drums on the track, which adds even more depth to the intricate reworking.

Speaking about the track Sundunes explains “This was one of my favourite tunes from the record and I had a lovely time getting into it – one of those instances where the remix just came together in one sitting. That we were able to play a live-version of it at gigs in India earlier this February felt like a great starting point for what our collaborative stuff is going to sound and feel like”.

Listen below as Sandunes brillantly reconstructs the track adding a flavour of her diverse blend of electronica.
