Shares New Track “Times New Roman (Loraine James Remix)”
– Out now via Houndstooth

After recently signing to Houndstooth and sharing her new singleTimes New Roman”,  Shanghai-based Taiwanese singer-producer Scintii is sharing a new rework of the track by Loraine James, which follows on from a Palmistry remix unveiled last week.

North London native Loraine James is an electronic producer who effortlessly blends electronica and IDM with whispers of jazz and ambience. James’ has re-imagined Scintii’s recent single into an enticing new realm, marking another new chapter for “Times New Roman”.

London producer Loraine James (Hyperdub) re-working has an IDM leaning tinge in it’s production, exploding it in the process, before reintegrating the parts in a fresh order, but one that also contains traces of future-pop in its DNA – as can be heard in the original, by PC Music / Charli XCX producer Danny L Harle.

Such a dramatic rework of Scintii’s latest track. It embaces the sonic elements to create a mighty and expansive new delivery.

Scintii makes music that is neither obviously for the club nor is it synth-pop, instead forging a cyber-sleek and moody late-night electronica. “I don’t really think about genre,” she says, “I think about what I’m trying to communicate – an atmosphere, or an emotion”

“Times New Roman” was co-written with PC Music producer and musician, Danny L Harle on a trip to London in summer of 2019, after Harle invited her to his studio to record some sessions. “The main melody came to me while wandering round a shopping mall,” she says, “but I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then I had the session with Danny and it just worked with the beat he was making. It really started to become about me feeling sure of myself as a musician and producer, going in a new direction and really being able to maximise my own voice.” 

With such instantly recognizable vocals and a sound that is rooted in neither London nor Shanghai, “Times New Roman” marks Scintii out as one to watch.
