British singer-songwriter and producer Chantitown released her debut EP Cause And The Cure independently. The EP was co-produced and co-composed with Jim Hustwit (Universal Music, National Theatre, Almeida Theatre) who also holds credit as People's Music Award Film and Music Composer. With an extraordinary desire to create timeless material that knows no boundaries or limitations, London-born Chantitown combines empowering and inspiring music with her genuinely gifted lyricism and storytelling abilities, a skill she developed whilst writing expressive poetry at the early age of only thirteen. Chantitown takes inspiration from iconic singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Carol King and Tracy Chapman, to the electronic and trip-hop sounds of Massive Attack, Portishead and MGMT and, stylistically, her sound can be compared to current artists Lorde, Bat For Lashes, Aurora and Lamb.
Manuel Tur’s remix of Chantitown’s debut offering ‘Cause and the Cure’ injects the track with dancefloor energy while still keeping the original’s powerful message. Drawing listeners in with a driving bass-drum, Manuel Tur goes on to place the spotlight on Chantitown’s exceptional vocals and then builds the piece up with a host of eclectic dub-infused drum sounds and synth-notes. Manuel Tur gives ‘Cause and the Cure’ a new edge, placing focus on the churning, infectious rhythms found in the track, bringing forth the tenacious anthemic quality of Chantitown’s beautiful single.
Peer Kusiv’s remix of ‘Cause And The Cure’ is a guitar driven deep-house track ready-made for any beach party or sundown cocktails. Kusiv perfectly incorporates his signature acoustic influences, keeping the singer-songwriter aesthetic of Chantitown at its core, while still maintaining a steady beat from start to finish, only allowing a break every now and then to let the listener completely succumb to his layered production. Immersed in intricate harmonies and tantalizing soundscapes, Peer Kusiv transformation of ‘Cause and the Cure’ aims to keep your feet moving with the use of deep bass and complex, yet subtle, vocal melodies.
