As the entire dance music industry travels down to the sunny city of Miami for Ultra and Miami Music Week, the music released this week and weekend has taken a bit of a tropical turn. Today, we premiere the debut release of a brand new project from Dell Harris and Smiles dubbed Mestizo. “Far Away” features Kalenna Harper on vocals, offering a bit of an R&B twist to the coconut-sipping vibes. To pair with the original, they’ve offered remixes from Lil Texas and Flinch, who offer heavier and more emotional flips, respectively.
Mestizo offered a few words on the release and their project:
We are excited for the world to hear our first project. I think you can tell we have a different belief of what dance music should be. And how we can use afrobeat to switch things up.
If you’re soaking up the sun in South Beach, you might hear this one playing through the speakers of your favorite shops and festival stages. Available for download via iTunes through Craze’s Slow Roast Records, you too can own all three versions for your playlists and DJ sets.
