American producer west1ne, whose real identity has been coyly kept under wraps, has always expressed a certain soulful intuition in his work. His specialty? Melodic and super catchy flips of both classic and modern hip-hop/R&B hits. So this latest edit of Sabrina Claudio’s “Stand Still” shouldn’t be in any way unexpected, but something about it feels unlike anything I’ve ever heard from him before.
The sultry vibes from the original are preserved yet west1ne manages to take the already amazing track to the next level with clever effects and processing. The uptempo drum pattern won’t let you stand still and the attention to detail is supreme.
