Essentials: “9 (After Coachella) ft. MØ and SOPHIE [KRANE Remix]” – Cashmere Cat

In his remix of Cashmere Cat’s “9 (After Coachella) ft. MØ & SOPHIE”, KRANE crawls into my head and fixes most of my issues with the original. He builds off its best melodic iteration, which only appears at the end, and smooths out the rhythmic progression so there aren’t any jolting stops or jarringly sharp turns. Instead the track steadily builds momentum to the final synth drop which is the remix’s strongest point. While the changes might make the track more tonally simplistic, the lack of variety makes for a more cohesive whole. KRANE released the remix less than two weeks ago and I’ve already listened to it more than the original.
