South London duo Fika is a genre-opaque tandem that flourishes in the space between hip-hop, alt-rock, and pop. Months after the release of the original, Fika passes off their single “Only One” to close collaborator El Train for an alternative-electronic remix.
UK-producer El Train is a composer with an eye for what’s what in modern hip-hop and soul. Having worked alongside the musical genius of Pip Millett and Sam Wills, El Train has solidified himself as a heavyweight champion both behind the scenes as a producer, and on the front lines as a solo artist. His bouncy and buttery smooth flip of “Only One” is a grainy and atmospheric one that speeds up the cadence of the original. Steeped in a retro film, El Train gives “Only One” a one-of-a-kind treatment that settles well with music fans from any background. A live look at alternative rock flirting with retro-electronica, El Train’s “Only One” remix challenges his signature sound while staying true to his palpable innovation.
