After releasing the “Intoxicated (Authur Tan Remix),” Nadine keeps on giving with a remix EP Wildest Dreams (1z Co. Remixes). The EP consists of two tracks “Ivory” and “Complicated Love.” She collaborates with azel north and MANILA GREY for the project and even drops lyric videos to go along with both tracks.
The remix EP starts off with “Ivory (azel north Remix)”, an up-tempo adaptation of the original track that features MANILA GREY opening with their hard-hitting verse. The song blends Nadine’s sultry electro-pop vocals and the duo’s energetic tempo, creating a track that is catchy yet true to the fragmented, haze-like melody of the original.
The second track, “Complicated Love (azel north Remix)”, is a duet by Nadine and James Reid and leans more towards a narration that discusses the darker side of a complicated relationship. azel north puts his spin into this track, resulting in a livelier version of the earlier melancholic number. Nadine Lustre rose to fame as an actress, but more recently turned her focus on music after joining the Careless Music roster in 2019. She eventually broke ground with the release of her studio debut last year, which came with a visual album that was touted as the first of its kind in the Philippines
Need to hear more from Nadine? Check out “Intoxicated (Arthur Tan Remix)” which is an up-tempo adaptation of the fourth track also from her album Wildest Dreams. The remix came about as two groundbreaking music labels, After The Noon Records and Careless Music, break new ground together as they formalize their partnership with this release.
Created by After The Noon CEO and artist Arthur Tan, the remix takes Nadine’s smooth and soulful original, and turns it into a deep house track that invites people everywhere to dance. Layering vibrant percussions and playful keys over Nadine’s sultry vocals, and tying it together with a catchy bass progression, the remix stays true to the original song’s dreamy, thrill-seeking spirit, while giving it a fresh feel.
In March 2021, Arthur launched After The Noon Records, a label that showcases the artistry and craft of DJs and producers. With the release of INTOXICATED (ARTHUR TAN REMIX), and the collaboration with Careless Music, listeners can only expect more exciting drops from this gamechanger.
Nadine Lustre rose to fame as an actress, but more recently turned her focus on music after joining the Careless Music roster in 2019. She eventually broke ground with the release of her studio debut last year, which came with a visual album that was touted as the first of its kind in the Philippines. The album is an ode to her love for EDM, pop, and early 2000s R&B.
Musical duo Soliven and Neeko, more commonly known as MANILA GREY, are Filipino-Canadian artists who immigrated to British Columbia from Manila. Soliven says about the group’s inception that, “We’re both originally from Manila. The ‘grey’ is Vancouver; it’s always rainy out here, but that’s where we create our music. Our name represents the duality of this past life versus our current life.” That isn’t the only thing about the group that has an element of duality, their yin and yang dynamic extends to music as well. Constantly on the lookout to fuse disparate musical elements together, the duo are members of an art collective called 1z Co. where azel north, the EP’s producer, is also a member.
Raised in Manila with experience in New York City, Arthur is a producer and DJ who has performed all over the Philippines, making crowds dance whether in hidden pubs,
go-to venues like Black Market and The Palace, or even Bacolod’s Masskara Festival.
In NYC, he has brought his music to Manhattan and Brooklyn, performing in venues including Kinfolk 90, Kinfolk 94, The Vinyl, and Smithfield Hall. Even in a pandemic, he has managed to release new music – including his debut single “Peace of Mind (ft. vydd)” and his debut EP After the Party in May 2021. His latest single “I Need U,” a collaboration with Manila-based singer-songwriter Lesha, was released in July 2021.
