I HEART MOOSIQ PREMIERE:

If you haven’t noticed from my countless shares and fervent exaltation, I’ve been enraptured over and over again, song after song, by Nashville’s CAPPA. The Philadelphia native released a self titled debut EP over a month ago, a deeply rousing collection of her excellent electronic pop songs. Seductive and dark, infectious and spirited, haunting and ethereal are but incommensurate words to describe the spellbinding tracks off the record. So, it’s really quite an honor that IHM gets to premiere a remix of one of those songs today. EP closer This Is Love receives a meditative and atmospheric makeover from New Orleans based electronic producer Beatwalker. The breathtaking remix takes the original’s flushed and impelling simmer and douses it with a crisp coolness perfect for the current summer heat knocking at our doorsteps. Beatwalker’s remix also basks in an introspective aura full of cinematic depth. CAPPA’s voice has never waxed more siren like and divine paired with Beatwalker’s finely tuned downtempo electronic soundscape. It nearly feels like a philosophical, spiritual examination of love, but within its serene folds hides an exquisite charge of emotion, the original’s fiery desire and intense passion. Download the vibe heavy, soul nourishing remix for free, here. Stream the original off CAPPA’s self titled debut EP, here, available to purchase on iTunes.
