Carly Rae Jepsen’s newest album Emotion was a hit with more independent-driven music sites when it came out last year. ‘Run Away With Me’ was one of those songs that brought new audiences through its M83 ‘Midnight City’-style sax dynamics. The album executive produced by Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager, who has recently been steering the unknown at home young Irish producer Eden to bigger audiences.
On the other side of the desk, Kildare producer Jack Casey aka EMBRZ came to attention via an Ellie Goulding remix in 2013 and has released some evocative EDM-ambient pop tracks. Maybe, Braun and co are keeping a closer eye on things in Ireland than you know.
Casey was given the opportunity to officially remix Jepsen, after all he has form in such things. This is what he came up with.
