The Touch "Sermon (Chad Valley Remix)"
Stockholm tech-pop outfit The Touch recently dropped an EP via the party-centric French label Kitsune, which comes with this romantic remix from talented UK artist Chad Valley. While the original version of "Sermon" relies heavily on austere minimalism and somber delivery, producer Hugo Manuel injects his take on the song with the trademark summery haze, radio fuzz, and Balearic hooks we've thoroughly enjoyed coming from his own EPs for Cascine. Despite all the blissful dance-pop emanating from this remix, there still remains a shade of quiet sadness that lingers over it all, and somehow makes it that much sweeter.
