SINGLE PREMIERE | "AWAY FROM HOME" - 9D1
The Mike Froh sampled single from YXE producer 9d1 graces our presence with a solid modern spin on the old record as well as kicking off a 12 track remix series.
1/3 of Saskatoon hip-hop collective, WEARELABRATS, 9d1 shines in the studio as a talented producer and engineer. He took "The Barse" by Dear Solace (a side project from Mike Froh, once of The Holly Springs Disaster) and turned it into a contemporary r&b record titled "Away From Home". 9d1 successfully captures the raw emotion from the original track while bringing an additional layer of energy. The piano sample is the star here as it resonates throughout the song creating an appropriate mood and contrasting nicely with the rest of the production. I think the direction that 9d1 took with this was exceptionally creative and I'm enjoying this new take on the old track. Listen below.
