Sam Smith is currently basking in the massive success of his recently released breakout album In The Lonely Hour. Held up by the chart-smashing Stay With Me, Smith’s other single Leave Your Lover is quickly catching on. San Diego producer ESTA. has jumped on the Sam Smith train and delivered a gorgeous new remix.
Having cut his teeth in the hip hop realm, ESTA. eventually made the transition into trap, soul, and R&B tunes. On his remix of Leave Your Lover, ESTA. turns the somber soul ballad into an ultra-chill electronic number. ESTA. strips down the backbone of the track, subdued guitar melodies and piano progressions, and replaces it with tantalizing trap kicks and serene synth beats.
