Australian producer Wave Racer shares his take on Ninajirachi’s ‘Wayside.’ A tender remix, Wave Racer strips back the high energy dance elements of the original in place of warm keys and garage-style percussion.
The track is teeming with glitchy, chiptune sounds above warping synths and vocal chops. Ninjirachi shares that she’s “LITERALLYY been a Wave Racer fan for 10 years” and calls his remix “a total flip of the original.”
She shares her first encounter with Wave Racer’s music, “I shazamed DCUP – Don’t Be Shy (Wave Racer Remix) at Porter Robinson’s first Australia shows in 2013 and I’ve loved his music ever since. I’m so grateful to have worked with him like this is actually so crazy to me!!”
Wave Racer shares, “Ninajirachi has an approach to sound design and music making that kind of reminds me of myself a little bit, but with her own fiercely unique and singular voice. It felt completely natural and seamless transforming her song into something that almost feels like an inverse to the original, like two sides of a coin.”
This release sees Wave Racer stepping back into the remix game for the first time in over 6 years, with landmark remixes for artists such as Duke Dumont, Snakehips and Foster The People early in his career catapulting him to the forefront of the electronic music scene.
