We had the opportunity to meet Nihil Young to discuss his new remix. Check it out below!

What elements of Talal’s original track did you want to keep and what did you want to change?
I kept one of the nasty leads but turned it into a groover rather than a melody. The original is very particular, and it’s an 80s-inspired downbeat with cold, cute melodies that I could hardly fit into my current sound, so I had to come up with something different, trying to keep the sweet feel of it but turning it into something harder.

What is the most important aspect of a successful remix?
Many factors come into play: the success of the originals in the first place, the label releasing them, the placements (whether the DSPs support/like it or not), and much more. Sonically, if vocals or particular melodies/sounds are involved, it will be up to the remixer to come up with something original and different rather than just rearranging the original or changing its speed and just a handful of sounds. To each their own, I always try to do something entirely different and retain some sounds from the original.

How has your sound evolved over the years, and where do you see your sound going next?
I started with melodic Techno and House, then evolved into Techno and Tech House, returning to more melodic sounds.

Looking at my catalog, I’ve always had a hard time sticking to a specific sound. I’ve had a lot of distractions and mishaps over the years that made it difficult for me to find my sound, master it, and stick with it. I’m pretty close now, finally happy and content with my sound design skills, finding my instruments, etc.
I intend to continue delivering hard beats based on melody with more attention to sound design and particular techniques, returning to using my voice, various forms of sampling and always keep an open ear and mind about any new technology that may arise. Countless instruments and plug-ins constantly reshape the game and are worth looking into.

What was your first reaction when you were approached to do a remix for Talal’s “Lorean” on Where The Heart Is Records?

I tried to juggle my ridiculous release schedule, doing my best to deliver a remix to my friend Talal and a nice label I never had the pleasure of working with.

What do you hope listeners take away from your remix of Lorean?
Any perception of depth, emotion, positive thought, pleasant groove, or even a single sound they might like.
