Still Parade "Actors (Niva Remix)"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
Niva's remix of Still Parade's "Actors" tune is a decidedly lush affair. It sees the Swedish producer abandoning the original song's folk-tinged framework, soaking his version of the music in a blend of thick pads and spacey FX. Still Parade's vocals have been considerably dialed back here, but they still play a crucial role in gracefully moving the tune along, whether it's through the delivery of hushed lyrics or through multiple layers of treated harmonies. And Niva's drumwork, although programmed, has a strong acoustic feel that helps bring the track to life.
