The young Ethan Snoreck, widely known as Wheathin, steps forward with another spectacular remix, this time flipping Opia‘s “Falling” from a downtempo indie-ballad into a funkified future fiasco. Wheathin impresses with electrifying synths, retro funk leads, and vocal manipulations that create an in-your-face energy unique to Ethan. The slow, melancholic singing over upbeat melodies and rhythm make for an exciting contrast.
His remixes are all passing a million plays and this one promises the same. The Chicago teenager already has the practiced ear for melody that you’d expect from a seasoned veteran, and the untamed creativity you’d pair with a child (I’m thinking Tommy Pickles from Rugrats). This combination of talent and youth draws only one worthy comparison and that’s to Louis The Child.
