Returning from her abrupt departure, reigning over top 10 charts all over the globe, Emeli Sandé reclaims her righteous place at the helm of pop-soul music mastery. Unleashing her gut-wrenching, gospel-tinged vocals, layered over softly illuminating instrumentation, the moment's most celebrated producer Offaiah takes charge of the remix for her latest single "Hurts". Offering his own unique take on her talent, the collaboration forges heavy results. Impactful, riling and full of progressive builds, the fast-rising Argentinean DJ wonderfully emphasises the poignant sentiment of the track, with his fast-moving, shuffle-ready, head-bobbing beats.
Speaking on working with the Virgin-signed singer from Scotland, Offaiah told Complex: This is a great, evocative number. I knew within 20 seconds I wanted to make this my first remix. I've turned down everything at this point but Emeli is a great artist and the song is really special. All the best to her." Infusing a bright feeling of hope into the lamenting love song, Emeli's rushed vocals crescendo in perfect harmony with Offaiah's electronic epiphanies, which rise and rise throughout the hymnal, dance rework. "Hurts" is out on iTunes now.
