Both musically and visually, Lia Ices is a beautiful woman. Her voice is powerful but fragile, and this can make remixing her work a bit of a challenge. But Tenderflex has done it with the subtlest of touches — adding a faded backbeat, layering echo effects beneath Ices’ vocals — to come out with a re-interpretation that, while it’s not a brand new animal, does give a beautiful creature some new stripes to gawk at.
Tenderflex is the new project of DJ Logic and producer David Maurice. Their remix of Ices’ track “New Myth,” from Ices’ LP Grown Unknown, makes the song a bit mystical. A smidge ethereal. Download it for free below.
