Ilja Alexander, the London-based dream-pop artist, announces the release of the sterling future bass remix for ‘Someday’, on 13 March via Green Monk Records. While the remix was premiered via Pop Dust, the original track was produced by Curtis Richardson (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Joss Stone), Adien Lewis (Taemin, SHINee, NCT Dream) and Alexander. The mixing was done by Matt Wiggins (U2, Adele, Lorde) and mastered by Randy Merrill (Taylor Swift, Liam Gallagher, Lady Gaga). The official music video for ‘Someday’ has been featured by the renowned CLASH Magazine, EARMILK, and Medium. Alexander has garnered substantial support in Indonesia, including Cosmopolitan Magazine and CLEO Magazine, and with his previous single shooting to #1 on the Ardan radio chart in Indonesia. Originally from Amsterdam, Alexander has recently formed a band in London. Inspired by a wide array of artists and eras, Ilja Alexander cites influences from acts such as Electric Light Orchestra, The Libertines, John Lennon, Paul Mc Cartney, The Beach Boys, and Burt Bacharach. However, the remix twists his work away from these influences, pulling ‘Someday’ towards the likes of Flume, Kygo, and San Holo. Carrying forward all of the emotion, impressions, and yearnings found in ‘Someday’, the remix provides future bass elements and jagged electronic adornments. With cascading snare drums and layered effects across, a delicate balance of maintaining the integrity of the original track while transporting it to an entirely new genre is struck.
Speaking of the remix, Ilja Alexander tells us, “After I first got a listen to the ‘Someday’ Remix, I thought: “Wow, amazed to see that my song and sound can be converted into a future bass dance remix!”. I never considered the possibilities of remixes, until the ‘Someday’ Remix.”
