Video Premiere: LUI HILL – 5000 Miles (Fye & Fennek Remix) – LIVE ON 26th JAN

Artist: LUI HILL
Title: 5000 Miles
Remixer: Fye & Fennek
Released: 26th January 2018
Genre: Hip-Hop / Breaks

The Fye & Fennek 5000 Miles remix is a dark, moody interpretation of the original track. With stronger electronic influences, the soul comfort zone is left for an edgier exploration. A subtle influence of Flume and Gaika can be heard.

LUI HILL is a connecting force. Banging on his drums in a rhythm reminiscent of a determined heart, his vocals take you somewhere along a soulful journey, miles and miles away from where you started. And yet it’s a journey eerily familiar.

Between the worlds of indie, pop, and soul to hip-hop; LUI HILL creates a space where limitations dissipate. What’s left is music one sinks into totally, while the imagination takes off into a dream-like state. The self-produced artist spends much of his time in his secretly located studio, where shadows and light show themselves in the music created. The sexiness of hip-hop for indie and dark electro beats for otherwise light indie-pop all merge and create the universe that is LUI HILL.

5000 Miles is a smooth blend of laid-back indie pop with a strong essence of soul – Reminiscent of genre classics, but with an undeniable modernity. Chanting voices hint at ancient laws- requesting their desires with a desperate but hopeful longing. LUI’s voice takes you through a phase one seeks escapism, and finally, closure from and leaves his listeners with the distinct feeling that it’s ultimately found in a place far, far away.
