Selfish Skin – Wicked Game (Prod. Strehlow) [TMN Premiere]

Selfish Skin
Wicked Game (prod. Strehlow)

To kick off the week we’ve got a special premiere for you here in the dojo. Selfish Skin and the producer Strehlow have come together for a seductive cover/remix of “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaaks. The 1989 single comes to 2017 with a whole new face and we’re loving it.

Selfish Skin shares a style in performance to the original, keeping with its style for audiences to recognize. Of course, she gives a bit of her own flare to the song, updating it with simple strokes from her unique palate. Strehlow’s instrumental keeps along with the original’s more vibey sound. It’s atmospheric and incredibly easy to lose yourself in. Hit play, turn repeat on and start your week off right with “Wicked Game” in its new form. Want a copy? Head over to Bandcamp for it.

[Electronic] Chris Siegel – This Is How EP

Most of the time when an artist releases a single, we ask ourselves, what were the other versions of the unfinished track like? Did the sound change? Well, Chris Siegel and Strehlow answered that for us with their EP This Is How. The double single project features the title track, along with a VIP that takes a turn down a completely different road.

With the original “This Is How” we get a poppy tune that is highly influenced by a tropical-infused moombahton sound. Chris Siegel and Strehlow put together a complex composition with a lot of different moving parts that couldn’t have been easy to do. They made it flow without a hitch, with the result being one incredibly smooth record. With the VIP, the producers take the track down a future bass path, but still keep some of the original vibe. It feels like a 180, but when you really listen, it’s still got that Summer time vibe to it. Collaborators on the project include Siren, Lex Allen and Christine Hoberg. We applaud everyone’s efforts in the creation of both these masterpieces that you can download for free individually. Doesn’t get much better than that.
