STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Beatrice Eli releases ”That’s Not Us Cherish Label Remixes” with sweeep and Linnéa today.
Beatrice Eli’s 2017 The Careful EP was a truly emotionally open record, and the single “That’s Not Us” was its beating heart, a song poised somewhere between ballad and dark electronica.
“I admire both Dream Linnéa and sweeep’s production styles, they are two unique producers with strong sounds and I love what they did with That’s Not Us. I’m also very inspired by Cherish Label. Evelina [Åslin, label manager] is a force, I feel she’s changing the scene here in Stockholm by providing a platform with soft values in an industry that can be very hard and macho.”

“It was fun remixing her song, since I don’t produce pop I could flip it to how it would sound if it was a sweeep-song. I pitched and chopped the a capella, and created a dark atmosphere around a melody I liked in Beatrice’s song.”
“Obviously I had to take the opportunity to do a duet with Swedish Queen B, otherwise I would have to demand my own resignation. I guess my version is the same 808 vs mallet syncopation shit I always do, except I added some cute tablas and a berimbau. It turned out pretty neat.”
Both remixes is out today April 18, released on Cherish Label and Trans94.
