Today, the two forces Basenji and Merci, Mercy come together in the form of a remix, and it gives a bit of a snapshot as to what's expected from merci, mercy if she ever does decide to go down that more bubbly, slightly left-field pop route. The remix of Tequila & Lemonade - only Basenji's second output for the year, after a low-key remix of Odette's Feverbreak earlier on - shows the two acts at their best; Basenji reinvigorating one of the no thank you, no thanks EP's peak moments with a rich twist of his signature charm, with popping synth and dancing melodies deepening the track's embrace of electronica.
"So cool to hear Basenji's new take on Tequila & Lemonade," says merci, mercy on the remix. "He gave it such a fun vibe, love the extra bubbles." It's a sentiment shared by Basenji, who felt drawn to merci's work as an exciting, Australian pop artist. "It was a delight to remix an exciting Australian artist. merci, mercy is doing amazing things! We've never met in person, but that's all part of the beauty of these unique circumstances that we find ourselves in - But maybe one day! I hope you have as much fun listening to this remix as I did making it"
