With his remix of Lianne La Havas’ “Elusive,” Flako meshed organic elements with lush layers of electronics, and his latest remake shows off some of that same ability with even more tact, employing a minimalist approach that builds to an understated but perfect breaking point at the 2:30 mark. Throughout the whole mix, the vocals become more of an atmospheric thread woven through the metallic production—a skillful way to add a little bounce to this track while still maintaining the moody vibes that makes this song what it is. Play this one late at night with the lights off.
