London-based producer Kareful has stepped up to the remix plate on Verasect’s ‘Tragedy (Kareful Remix)’ – out on Terminal Blue Records. The track is the first single to be lifted from Verasect’s upcoming EP, Awakenings which will include remixes from artists such as the late Øfdream, Kareful, Dobie and Blood Wolf.
The two collaborators make for an interesting combination. Kareful adds a an uplifting spin onto a track that straddles the line of darkwave. Verasect’s use of female vocals is idiosyncratic in it’s own right, and the producer has his own way of injection moodiness into a track.
We’re hoping to see a lot more from these two together in the future.
Kareful speaks to us about his inspiration surrounding the remix, “I was very inspired by the vocals on ‘Tragedy’ and decided I’d focus on trying to add my own spin on them. The beat came together once I layered a few ethereal melodies, I was unsure where to take the track next. I’ve been producing mostly ‘club’ tracks for a while so was tempted to create another banger, but after a while, the track ended up writing itself, it turned into more of a song! Once I showed it to a couple of friends, and got some great feedback, I knew it was finished.”
