SONG OF THE DAY: Emma Hewitt – “Miss You Paradise”
Emma Hewitt’s debut artist album Burn the Sky Down is one of the most gorgeously epic collections that I have ever listened to. Though choosing a favorite song is a challenge, “Miss You Paradise” is definitely a highlight. The original album version is reminiscent of the classic 4AD downtempo sound which highlights her almost spoken verses that gradually blend into the lushly layered bridge and chorus. She sounds like a cross between Brigid Boden and Enya. The Shogun remix adds a pounding trance beat for the verse while keeping the chorus sparse to keep the focus on her ethereal vocals. With the different mixes, you’ve got a song that sounds great prime time at the club as well as a closing track or for chill out listening at home.
