Following up on Sir Winston’s most recent single ‘Hollywood Hills’ (100K + streams to date), My Girl is the first of several remixes of the track to be released over the coming months.
Hollywood Hills – My Girl remix out now is a punchy clever twist on the original track. Maintaining all the dark, chaotic & intense moments of the single, the remix provides its own journey with deep bass, fat UK Garage beats and a spooky hypnotic synth breakdown that delivers an even creepier adventure.
Sir Winston worked with studio master Abe Seiferth (Car Seat Headrest) again on the remix and they smashed it out at Transmitter Studios in Greenpoint New York. “I love remixing my own tracks – it’s so much fun. Things flowed fast when we went at this – the parts in the original are very intense and we wanted to keep them up front and within their own space. The song tells a story with the lyrics so keeping the integrity of the vocals was important too. We kept the pressure on with a smacking beat and once we dropped the trippy synth part in and pushed the guitar riff we thought: Yassss! This is hectic AF and super creepy” – Sir Winston
Fans of Jamie XX and LCD Sound System will love this carefully crafted remake of a track that has garnered much attention since its release a few weeks ago.
