Boyfriend "Fears (DJ Ayres Remix)"
This week saw Lithuanian producer Boyfriend issue his Fears EP via Brooklyn label T&A. Closing out the three-track effort is this remix from NYC producer DJ Ayers, who reshapes the originally driving affair into more refined form. Still focusing on the same progression as Boyfriend had on his own version, DJ Ayers' rework laces "Fears" with a slight skip and extra layers of dense, dramatic strings and engrossing pads. The resulting version of the track is surely more subdued than the original, but still no less appropriate for the dancefloor.
