This is not a drill. Beloved beatmaker, prolific producer and so-so solo artist Timbaland has stepped in to remix one of the hottest young R&B prospects of the past several years. The drums are heavy and the strings are epic, like we’d expect any less from Timbaland. That said, Jacob Bank’s harrowing vocal work still stands tall amongst all that production prowess, but it’s a cosign that shouldn’t be ignored by any means.
Stockholm based producer Mountain Bird creates a wonderful world of indie-electronica with an 80’s inspired analogue synth sound. His remix for fellow Stockholm artist Amanda Mair and her recently released single “Rush/Wednesday” is the first recorded collaboration between the two and the remix itself is 3 minutes of fantastic and dramatic sounding dance pop.
”I heard the magical vocal track and the feeling hit me. Produced a remix of Rush. Had some coffee. Cried a bit. Laughed. And then I sent the bounce to you.”
– “This is what Mountain Bird answered when I asked him about the remix. And my first reaction of the remix was, ‘wow first time I see myself as Beyoncé in a music video dancing in a sweaty desert.’ And I couldn’t resist myself for loving that thought (and the remix of course).” – Amanda Mair
Amanda Mair will release a new EP entitled “To The Moon” in November and stay tuned for more.

They deliver a harder hitting clubbier version of the og track with sweeping synths, a housed up piano line and one filthy drop.
