Seb Wildblood – Wet Summer (Kornél Kovács Remix) [Omena Records]

Artwork by Rickard Eklund


Here at Bolting Bits, we don’t always post remixes. But, when we do, you can bet its a phenomenal piece of music. Case and point, Kornel Kovacs’ dandy of a remix of Seb Wildblood’s tune “Wet Summer” on Omena Records.

In this track, you have two of the most prominent producers and label heads in the game join forces. In one corner, you have Seb Wildblood, the unapologetic jazz enthusiast from South London who runs the boundary-pushing, electronic label Church. In the other, you have Kornel Kovacs – an eclectic Swedish musician that’s known for his idiosyncratic approach to house music that exemplifies the sound coming from his label Studio Barnhus (which he co-owns with Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist).

Before listening, we did not know what to expect. The two individuals that make up this song have completely different styles. Wildblood tends to be more subdued and chilled out, whereas Mr. Kovacs resides on the more energetic and playful side of things. However, when they combine, the result lies somewhere in between – creating a song that manages to take itself seriously and be whimsical at the same time.

We do not know if it’s the changing of the seasons, but every time we listen to this remix, the anticipated warmth of Spring starts to wash over us. Every year, we always use a song to signal the beginning of the warm months ahead, and we believe we found it with this one!
