Jessie Ware Remixed: Behind The Scenes

London Editor / November 03, 2014

ONE TRACK. FIVE CITIES. FIVE PRODUCERS. FIVE REMIXES... As part of Red Bull Studios ongoing collaborative relationship with Jessie Ware, a completely unique remix project has been launched – Jessie Ware: Remixed. The project saw Jessie invite five of her favourite producers to work on a special remix of her track, Keep on Lying, at five Red Bull Studios around the globe, over five days....

Check out our exclusive, behind the scenes photo gallery as Jessie visited each Red Bull Studio and then check out her very own Remixed website.

Specifically chosen to represent different genres and distinctive sounds, each remixer met up with Jessie in a Red Bull Studio around the globe (London, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, NYC) to work on the remixes together.  The result is five incredible new versions of Keep On Lying, each with a completely unique approach, and five engaging video webisodes of behind the scenes ‘making of’ footage for each track.

Much hyped Birmingham garage/grime composer, producer and Skepta’s tour DJ Preditah kept it local, meeting up with Jessie at Red Bull Studios London to create a club friendly, garage version of the record. Spanish electronic producer, vocalist and DJ, Pional met up with Jessie at Red Bull Studios Paris to create a fresh bass heavy version pulling drawn out melodies in true Pional style. She paired up with Russian techno producer wunderkind Nina Kraviz in Amsterdam and wrote a beautifully melodic, minimal techno version of the song, while hip hop producer Harry Fraud hooked up with Jessie in his hometown at Red Bull Studios NYC to share his unique take on the track.  Finally, classically trained DJ and record producer from LA, Tokimonsta, known for her distinctive take on indie/electroni/r’n’b and dance music, flew to Copenhagen with Jessie and came up with a glitchy r’n’b electronic version.

Red Bull Studios in London Bridge has been something of a second home to Jessie Ware for a number of years; it’s where she recorded her 2012 Mercury nominated debut album Devotion and the current follow up Tough Love, which is once again generating critical acclaim across the board.
