Tāmaki electronic experimenter deepState shares 'Parallel (Sonya Waters Remix)', the fourth of seven red-hot reimagined tracks from soon-to-drop EP MMXXI The Remixes. Out in full this Friday via local label heroes Sunreturn, the latest taste from the collection showcases Sonya Waters' (The Instigators, Orange, Fang) hazy take on MMXXI stand-out 'Parallel'. Composer and Aotearoa music-making trailblazer, Waters stripped back the already mellow cut into an otherworldly instrumental soundscape, saying she approached the task aiming to create "an Impressionist sound painting". Described by deepState (aka Jessica Morgan) as "a mesmerising journey", the new mix will be joined on the EP by features from Grecco Romank, Trapjaw Kelpie and Baby Zionov later this week. Read up on Sonya Waters' approach to the task and dip into the ambient 'Parallel (Sonya Waters Remix)' below...

"I wanted to make an ambient piece like an Impressionist sound painting where small strokes of audio blur together to present a soundscape that is almost devoid of events."

"After choosing a more gentle element of the original mix as an underlying layer, I chopped out pieces of sound and manipulated them in a granular way, by stretching or shrinking, to create an overall vibe of floating and layering, where voices enter and exit the soundfield in different ways. The piano was added as a played response to the original sequence of notes."

'MMXXI The Remixes' is out this Friday via Sunreturn.
