Anatole turns Tiny Little Houses’ ‘You Tore My Heart’ into cinematic bliss
Melburnians about the indie local music scene will be familiar with the band TINY LITTLE HOUSES making music to the beat of their own genre, and their track ‘You Tore Out My Heart’. To take their genre-bending even further, Sydney based producer ANATOLE has worked his remix magic to take the track to a whole new place.
Anatole has become well known for his remixing prowess, having made his name working with tracks by the likes of The Japanese House and Jack Grace. The guy formally known as Jonathon Baker starts his remixes by picking out a particular texture or sound he finds an affinity with, and then creates the remix from here.
In the case of ‘You Tore Out My Heart’ this is the voice of Tiny Little Houses singer Caleb Karvountzis. He then adds horns, strings, bells and even had a go at playing the flute for the first time. The effect is something that has an almost bizarre quality, combined with sounds that feel a little like an orchestra all warming up together, before suddenly breaking into a song perfectly, with a choir singing alongside them.
Mixed by Becki Skye and mastered by Andrei Eremin the overall effect of Anatole’s remix is something very powerful.
