The next release on Rebel Hill sees the label sign Isaac Sakima, a very hot new talent who is sure to blow up in the coming months. Recently signed by a leading UK publisher, Rebel Hill is the first label to snap him up for a new single, ‘Let The Right One In’, complete with remixes from Wolfhaus, Unlikely Futures, Signal Shot and Dustyfruit.
The singer songwriter’s original is a moody piece of stripped back future pop. With heavyweight and shuffling kicks, deft melody patterns and Sakima’s pure, crystal clear vocals, it’s a track that really works its way into your brain and will likely become a perfect end of the night anthem in club land.
The first remix comes from Top Billin and Trax Records man Wolfhaus, who layers in plenty of skittish metallic percussion and even more swirling, celestial synth patterns to make it a real cosmic gem. He filters the vocal and the overall effect is like a heartfelt electronic lullaby.
Unlikely Futures have featured high up the hype charts with their remix of DVBBS ‘We Are Electric’ and here go for a post dubstep, twinkly metropolis in the dead of night vibe with their doleful pads and more prickly synthetic sounds that glow like stars.
Dusty Fruit provide a much more aggressive, chopped up remix with clattering drums and wobbling LFO sounds propping up the original vocal, before Signal Shot go deep and suggestive with their light garage remix, with knocking beats all sounding deep underwater as piano notes linger up top.
A fine debut single from Isaac Sakima that will surely send him to the big time, and also a release that shows Rebel Hill to be very much on the pulse.
