Here is the rather stunning Owsey remix of Ellie Goulding’s ‘The Writer’, which was dropped on his official Soundcloud last night. This is most definitely one of my favourite works of his, words cannot describe how beautiful this is. But I guess I’ll give it a go anyway.
The Northern Irish producer has turned his deft hand to this track, one of my favourite Goulding songs, and added his own unique brand of atmospheric, chilled out dubstep to it. Utilising a magnificent string arrangement, the sound of a rainstorm, piano and that angelic vocal of Ellie’s, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this song.
In the past this guy has reworked tracks from the likes of Birdy (see his remix of ‘Shelter’ HERE) to great success, and he’s rapidly showing people his ridiculous levels of talent with his originals. He’s recently received love from XFM DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, who has the perfect platform to allow this guy’s music to reach a wider audience. And deservedly so. With a debut album in the works, it doesn’t look like it’ll be long before the mellowness of tracks like these are in your ears a lot more often.
This kind of music makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Check out the Owsey remix of ‘The Writer’ below and grab your free download by clicking the little arrow in the player. Wow.
