MNDR “Love In Reverse (with Empress Of)” Porches Remix
Even as Aaron Maine has evolved his Porches guise from its indie rock beginnings to a more dance and synth-pop-focused trajectory, his music has retained a deep sense of intimacy — it’s often as if he’s sharing straight from the pages of his diary. The NYC-based musician brings this same sensibility to his Porches remix of MNDR’s “Love in Reverse (feat. Empress Of),” deconstructing the already forlorn sentiment of the original to expose the rawest of emotions. Here, the song’s rolling rhythms have been stripped to a skeletal beat, while the bright, colorful synths are gray-scaled to a muted sparkle. MNDR’s yearning melodies are front and center. Unlike a traditional remix, with its pulsing production aimed for the dance floor, Porches has turned this song inward and instead asks the listener to simply let go… and feel.
