Shadow Child remixes Tensnake single ‘Somebody Else’


UK dance music veteran Shadow Child has remixed Tensnake’s latest single ‘Somebody Else’, out 26th June. The remix follows the release of the original, due out on Tensnake’s album ‘L.A’ harnessing a nostalgic rave vibe.

One of the most influential electronic artists of recent times, Hamburg-born Tensnake tasted UK chart success with 2010 smash ‘Coma Cat’. That peaked at #11 in the UK Indie Charts. He has since remixed songs from the likes of Aloe Blacc, Lana Del Rey, London Grammar and Duke Dumont. He’s collaborated with Nile Rodgers, and dropped debut album ‘Glow’ and amassed over 70 million streams on Spotify alone. His second album entitled ‘L.A’ is due out mid-September and is a musical diary of his time spent in the city.

One of the most familiar faces in UK dance music, Shadow Child is best known for club favourites ‘23’ and ‘Climbin’’. He’s released music on lauded underground imprints such as Dirtybird, Moda Black and Unknown to the Unknown over the years. A stellar rework, Shadow Child’s  ‘Somebody Else’  is an essential listen for any true house head. Shadow Child’s remix pairs anthemic sirens and forceful kick drum with Matthews’ fresh, youthful vocal.

Tensnake said about the original: “Somebody Else” is probably my favourite song on the album. When Boy Matthews and I met in Los Angeles we instantly got along and the songwriting came very naturally together. I’d say it is also the song which reminds me the most of my time in Los Angeles; this city has such a nostalgic feel and I tried to capture that vibe in this song. There is a fair bit of retro style to the instrumental, but in combination with the modern vocals it sounds very fresh to me.”

Shadow Child added, “Great to remix Tensnake, and merge his work with the vibe of my Apollo series too!”

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
