Son of Sun "Feel Like I Feel (John Daly Remix)"
- Words: James Eaton
Son of Sun (pictured above) is the combined efforts of Berlin-based producer Tyson Ballard and vocalist Sheff. Together, the two recently released an EP via London's Love Fever imprint, but the pair had also worked together on Ballard's 2013 for Voyeurhythm, from which the original "Feel Like I Feel" can be found. Handed over to irish producer John Daly for remix duties, the track is taken to the more space-minded ends of soulful house here. Extending the production to a spacious eight minutes, Daly—who also has a record on the way for Love Fever—subdues the original's vocals beneath layers of bouncing keys and airy pads, which echo atop the rework's loose hats and rounded bass notes. Son of Sun's Whispers EP is out in vinyl form now (and is streaming in full after the jump), with a digital release slated to land on September 1 and an eventual remix EP featuring Soul Clap, Boris Werner, Citizen, and Adesse Versions set to land in October.
