Multi-talented producer and poet, Sam Frankl, has unveiled Leaving Macondo, the remix of his debut solo single Macondo (Which you can listen to below).

Co-produced with emerging beatmaker LuQus, Macondo embraces a downtempo, electronic framework interspersed with stunning live instrumentation from cellist Meg Ella, alongside percussion from Only Rays and vibraphone by Rob Hervais-Adelman (Stompy's Playground). I'm all about that bass, absolutely infectious!!

Now the remix, Leaving Macondo, sees Sam experiment with samba and bossa flavours. Adding only new bass and cajon parts, the melodic elements of the song are all taken from the original Macondo project folder, making a perfect segue which is completed by a further remix from LuQus.

Recorded at professional studio Kite, which Sam and LuQus run together, the tracks were mastered at the prestigious Fluid Mastering Studio (Thom Yorke, Slow Magic, Saint Raymond) by Oli Morgan.

Frankl began his music career as one half of alt-pop duo Red Room, who formed in 2009 and played the likes of The Garage in Islington and Kent’s Hop Farm Festival, alongside gaining traction on The 405 and Stereoboard with their 2011 ‘Waxpoetics’ EP.
