Softy Soft Vol. 1 is the first selection of reworks of material from Dan Bodan’s acclaimed album “Soft”. Softy Soft is Dan Bodan commissioning friends, peers, and underground legends to bring Soft from the bedroom to the club. Montreal’s CFCF kicks off by adding layers of dance-pop piano and rolling basslines to Romeo, transforming it into a catwalk strut.
It’s backed up with the “Capulet’s Shallow Shame Re-think” by Los Angeles producer Draveng (who recently released a great EP on Soft co-producer Physical Therapy’s Allergy Season label), which oscillates and swirls in the lower registers, with only glimpses of Dan’s vocals peeking through the murk.
Stay tuned for future installments, which will feature remixes by E+E, Howie B, and Low Concept, among many others. Stream CFCF’s remix below. Purchase high quality digital music at DFA Direct.
