Homeshake’s Helium Remixes Have Plenty of Depth


Since the project began, Montreal’s Homeshake has taken Peter Sagar all over the globe. Earlier this year, the multi-instrumentalist and songwriter released Helium and quickly proved that he could change how he made music and his sound at the same time. On the Helium Remixes, that new sound gets reinterpreted by multiple people and they take his sound to all sorts of new territories.

The album really takes shape from the opening track, “All Night Long” as remixed by Ciel, giving the song more of a trip hop meets space feel. The song steers from its relaxed demeanor and pops with more intensity than the original while the vocals get re-imagined as well. The Jessy Lanza remix of “Like Mariah” offers plenty of snap as well, showing where you can take music if you’re willing to make it your own while the remix of “Another Thing” from LH is it’s own thing as well. But with all of this, the DJ PAYPAL remix of the “Secret Song” is on a whole other level. PAYPAL turns the original track on its ear, adding a layered effect that makes the track hit in a whole other way. While remix records might not be something that typically pop off, this one could go places few often do, including into the ears of thos who may not even be familiar with Homeshake’s music.

Helium Remixes can be streamed on all streaming sites, it can be purchased in all digital storefronts or directly from Sinderlyn Records. Homeshake is on tour tonight in San Francisco, CA at Great American Music Hall until August 23 in San Diego, CA at The Observatory North Park. His complete tour details can be accessed here
