[SEBELL] “Promiseland (STINT remix)”

STINT‘s stunning remix of [SEBELL]‘s “Promiseland” is a prime example of the power a great producer’s fingerprint can have on an existing piece of music. Rather than simply chop up the smooth piano at the core of the original track and noodle with synth overlays, STINT showcases his musicianship by completely re-recording the main hook on a kalimba. His use of this old-world instrument brings fascinating depth to [SEBELL]’s lyrics, turning the saddened pop song into a ballad from a forgotten time before dropping in with modernized blips and snare rolls. With STINT at the helm, the track becomes spooky and heartbreaking on a level inaccessible by the original.
