Drawing inspiration from the likes of, Sigur Ros, Dive, Björk and Massive Attack, Swedish electronica artist Moist has become known for his rich, timeless production and ability to capture a vocalist’s soul content within a melody.

This remix from Dicky Continental (alias of Rich Thair from Red Snapper), takes all of those qualities to a whole new level.

Sounds like: This is a ride – One that is wrapped up in longing and meant to be felt with your whole body.
