Whenever I see the name FAVELA next to a new music track I have to stop and take notice. Having been blown away with his original creations like the incredible “Easy Yoke” tune, I can now call myself a huge fan of the ‘Favela’ production style and sound. And his reinterpretation of the fantastic Emily and The Woods’ song “Helios” is absolutely stellar once again!
“Helios” has a smooth laid-back vibe to it in its original form but FAVELA somehow finds a way to slow it down in a refreshingly cool way. From an intro that makes me feel like being suspended in midair to the steadily driving beats echoing across the track, “Helios” has an easy-going pace to it I can happily get lost in. And the creation solidifies my feelings that the young talent is just getting started. Here’s to the next time I come across the name FAVELA again! Nicely done!
