London newcomer Attawalpa has reached for the big guns when it comes to a new remix of latest track ‘Done Hanging On’ – enlisting the help of a certain Joel from Wolf Alice.
The track, full of big-time electro energy, is well and truly taken to new heights whilst also answering the question of what on earth some of Wolf Alice have been up to over the past few months.
Speaking about the remix, Attawalpa explains the story: “I first met Joel at a weekly club night I was co running at St Moritz in London. Wolf Alice hadn’t been formed yet and neither had Attawalpa. We had a lot in common and ended up becoming friends. We kept in touch over the years and sent him ‘Done Hanging On’ as I thought he might be able to do something cool with it. I don’t know much about current dance music but Joel knows I love Prince – and I dig his remixes. Anyway, I was so blown away by what he did that I felt it deserved a music video. My go to visual wizard Grain Freeze jumped at the chance to remix the video I already had by Alex Jenkins and Joe Taylor and now we have a visual portal into this awesome remix. Both Grain Freeze and Joel took it to the edge of the ether. Hallelujah.”
Joel explains the remix itself, laying out that “Me and Luis have been old souls together for many years now, but this is the first time we’ve collaborated! I loved the song and the melodies as soon as I heard it and it was a pleasure to work on something like this during such a wild year.”
Attawalpa, otherwise known as Luis Felber (who has previously played/worked with the likes of Jamie T, Loyle Carner and some geezah called Mick Jagger), will release his debut EP in early 2021.
