One of the most vibrant and interesting records released in 2021 Belgian-Japanese artist Aili’s debut EP 'Dansu', recorded with fellow Belgian Transistorcake, caught the music industry’s attention with its bricolage of Kosmiche Musik, Acid House, Electronica, Disco & Leftfield Pop. Now as clubs across the world begin to reopen Eskimo Recordings have brought in South Korean DJ & producer Shubostar to give, 'Pari Pari', one of the EP’s standout tracks a fresh rub for the nighttime crew.
Whilst the original floated by in an otherworldly haze, Shubostar anchors her remix of the track with a pulsating Italo bass line, four/four kick drum and the kind of massive gated snares that will be familiar to anyone who caught the Mexico based producer's contribution to Eskimo’s recent 'Next Wave Acid Punx' compilation.
Introducing a scratchy disco guitar riff and washes of synths Shubostar creates the perfect vehicle for Aili’s vocals. "Aili's unaffected, almost naive singing touched my heart, before her Japanese lyrics brought me right back to my childhood. That plus the tracks’s dramatic synthesizers sound gave me lots of ideas,” explains Shubostar.
With more to come soon from the young Belgian-Japanese artist, Shubostar's remix perfectly complements the original’s neon lit pop, perfect for dancing the night away before heading home to once more revisit Aili’s startling debut.
