Up-and-coming Glaswegian talent NDEM is back three weeks on from his incredible Snavs remix with another, arguably even more outstanding remix. This time he chooses to rework dwilly’s track ‘HMU’ featuring vocals by Meg Lieder. NDEM’s remix is nothing short of superb. Heavy competition, in fact, to the original track itself and one you certainly do not want to miss.
This remix is a radio edit style and we go straight into the breakdown with the fantastic original vocal from Meg Lieder sitting above arped chords. The chord patterns work perfectly to give a sense of tension, without drawing too much attention from the vocal.
However, the real magic in this remix comes in the contrasting drop sections. In the first drop, NDEM utilises the topline stem to its maximum potential as vocal chops that provide a stunning melody. These are carefully weaved around lead synths offering a complimentary support melody. Underneath is a light bassline and trap percussion providing rhythm.
The second drop is altogether quite contrasting to the first, helping to keep this remix interesting throughout. In a harder trap style, with a revved up melody, incorporating fills that comprise of chops of the first drop section, this latter drop is absolutely spellbinding.
In a scene saturated by average remixes, it is refreshing to hear such an incredible take on an original track. NDEM shows his studio skills are not to be dismissed here and he has clearly taken the time to hone his production knowledge. We look forward to an official release date for this remix and following this talented producer’s career as it unfolds. Check out dwilly – HMU ft. Meg Lieder (NDEM Remix), here:
