Allie X “Catch” (Billboard Remix): Idolator Premiere

In February, Toronto songbird Allie X swooped into our lives and dazzled us with her shimmering synth-pop gem “Catch,” causing us to declare it was the best song of 2014 so far. (One or two others have cropped up since then, but “Catch” is still soaring pretty high in our book.) Now fellow Canadian Billboard (real name: Mathieu Jomphe) has remixed the track, thus slowing it down and giving it a moodier, synthier makeover.

“The first time I heard Allie X’s distinct music and voice it grabbed me right away and I knew I wanted to be a part of her project,” Billboard, who’s written and/or produced for the likes of Robyn, Ke$ha and Britney Spears, tells Idolator. “In remixing ‘Catch’, I was inspired by the darkness in the lyric to make something deeply emotional.”
