Following the release of Valentina’s latest single ‘Love Myself’, London DJ and producer Flaurese drops a house remix. Inspired by late night tales of London’s hedonistic nightlife, Flaurese strips back and nods to the original with a deep Lo-Fi house interpretation.
‘On very few occasions am I totally mesmerised by the warmth and vulnerability of a song. It was a privilege to immediately feel like I could give me reflection on it and build it into a different space. It’s allowed me to tap into a sound that I’ve not worked on myself and felt like something you’d experience abroad in the early hours which I love the idea of.’ – Flaurese
‘With this remix I wanted to explore the different worlds this song could exist in. I had intentionally kept the production of the original really pared down and simple, it kept the feeling and the intention that I initially had for this track; but I also love turning songs on their head, how just a few changes can make it say something a little different – maybe more hopeful, or even it can add to the melancholy of the original. I have always enjoyed the juxtaposition within a lot of house tracks of the uplifting and the melancholic and I felt like Flaurese was the perfect person to bring this song to life with this remix.’ – Valentina
With the vocals sung as a ode to the raw expression of seeking love whilst sacricing ones own identity, Flaurese’s interpretation is perfectly suited for perveyors of house music.
