Twin Oaks - Gravity (Vucari Remix)

Vucari is the alias of Nick James, an ambient producer hailing from Plymouth, MA.

Describing his work as "an outlet for my brain" James has slowly pieced together a catalogue of impressive downtempo electronica, available through his Soundcloud page.

Tracks such as Silently, Hope Endures and the mesmeric Wet Snow are hallmarked by featherlite percussion and a rush of delicate synths to produce blissed-out escapist etherea.

But it's Vucari's most recent work, a collaboration with Los Angeles folk pairing Twin Oaks, which has perhaps garnered the most attention. Indeed, the Vucari remix of Gravity - originally a melodic acoustic piece - has been transformed into a soaring chillwave imprint. Inviting comparisons with contemporaries such as Sun Glitters and Blackbird Blackbird; it's a masterclass in towering, electronic dream pop.

For the time being, Gravity is available for free download here. To discover more about Twin Oaks, visit their official website or Facebook pages.
