Track Of The Day 12/6 – Ang Low x Embody

'Drive' (MakeLove Remix)

Embody was invited to remix Ang Low last year, an invitation which was to prove fateful for both artists.

Hailing from either side of the Atlantic, the twin talents seemed to find common ground. Swapping ideas, the pair began working on something fresh, something new.

'Drive' is the result. Sonically gorgeous but lyrically torn, Ang Low explains: "The night I wrote the lyrics to 'Drive' I was I was over it all. The drama of the city, I was trippin about the job and my shitty check… I went home and started writing about getting away. I remember being frustrated as I wrote it because I couldn't play the piano cause I had fucked up a finger. Almost cut it in half that night on the line…"

MakeLove has stepped in on remix duties, lending a house feel to 'Drive'. The introversion of the vocal is retained, but this is pitted against some glistening, almost disco beats.

Deliriously uplifting, you can check it out below.
