LISTEN: Cyril Hahn ‘Perfect Form’ feat. Shy Girls
The lovely mixes of CYRIL HAHN have gotten him a flood of praise over recent months and it’s this praise that is raising him up higher in the electronic world. Experimenting in his early high school years with music production, CYRIL HAHN went on to produce some pretty sweet mixes of some “taboo” tracks. With his remixes catching the eyes of big names like DIPLO (who used CYRIL HAHN‘s mix of ‘Say My Name’, the classic DESTINY’S CHILD track, as the closing track for his BBC Radio 1 mix show) and THE XX, the upcoming producer has had his name bounced all over the world wide web and became one of the most exciting acts of 2012. CYRIL HAHN has remixed HAIM, ALPINE, and the lovely SOLANGE but has now released his own track ‘Perfect Form’ with the help of the love SHY GIRLS.
SHY GIRLS lent the Canadian-based producer their vocal chords to help produce a very laid-back track with synths that dance smoothly and calmly. It’s light and is perfect for a midnight dream as it seems to put you into a sort of trance that helps you just escape from pretty much everything. It’s synths trickle over the high vocals of SHY GIRLS and lay the way for a beautiful melody to just float alongside everything.
This is CYRIL HAHN‘s first release and it couldn’t be a better introduction as it combines the beautiful mixes he previously did, with the soulful vocals of SHY GIRLS.
The atmospheric and dream-like mood that CYRIL HAHN seems to create is one that seems to be booming lately along with artists LONDON GRAMMAR and SIGUR ROS, however CYRIL HAHN seems to be in a league of his own by stepping out of the mould and creating a feeling that embraces the guilty pleasures we all have in a track that will probably become a huge hit.
