New York singer Vanessa Daou is releasing a fresh batch of remixes for her Zipless song “Becoming a Nun.” The “2.0” remixes feature West Coast-based hip hop/future soul producer DJ Hen Boogie, UK house producer Hifi Sean, New York cosmic deep house producer Koded (acclaimed producer/engineer Konrad Carelli) and LA producer/engineer The Sunset Path. We have the remix from Hifi Sean available for you today before it is released tomorrow.
As the remix title would suggest, this is meant for those late night or very early morning moments. Some of the jazzy elements are stripped away and replaced with some late night UK house grooves, a touch of acid and a little guitar. The feel of the original is still there, but Hifi Sean brings it to the afterparty.
“'Becoming a Nun' speaks to the desire, and beyond that, the need to rid oneself of the guilt and shame associated with physical pleasures which we as women are inculcated with from an early age. I've always wanted it to be a single, as it encapsulates my own need for freedom and release from the burdens inherited from the past. Hifi Sean's mix captures that feeling of ecstatic release that I love to experience on the dance floor."
The remix pack will be released tomorrow via KID Recordings and DAOU Records. Stream it below until then.
