See Me Thru Remix Out: Listen HERE
First in a series of remixes from Madame Gandhi “Visions” EP
Madame Gandhi partners with Sarah Farina to remix her acclaimed and first single of the decade ‘See Me Thru’, the first of a remix series from her Visions EP. The Sarah Farina Remix places the song in a club context – moving between future bass and UK Garage tempos and feels. Repurposing Gandhi’s lyric “Love is the Truth” for a newly crafted hook, this remix expands the song to a wider audience who love dance.
The remix, is released and to much anticipation – according to Jon Pareles at The New York Times who says, “A dreamily multilayered love song, the extended a cappella vocals over the video credits are an invitation to remix.” Farina’s remix is everything a progressive beat lover lives for when it comes to fresh samples and delectable bass. A producer based out of Berlin and fellow ally, Farina and Gandhi have a lot of overlap in their message and path to empower women and the queer community while supporting a cause through their music.
Recognised and revered by the best of her bass music contemporaries, Farina has connections to crews worldwide including Teklife, Hyperdub, Deep Medi, Buraka Som Sistema and Exit Records. Capable of holding her own in line-ups alongside artists as diverse as DJ Storm, Laurent Garnier, Om Unit, Kode9, François K and Lunice, her sets unite the dance-floor, equally impressive to industry insiders and those who just want to dance.

About Sarah Farina:
Sarah Farina sprinkles positivity over the darkest bass. She’s innovative, she’s skilful, and she’s the smiling antithesis of genre cliques and sour scene elitists. What you hear is all you need to know. And what you’ll hear from Sarah Farina’s sets is seamlessly blended bass-heavy footwork and futuristic beats, with fearless forays through R&B and UK Funky. It’s inclusive, forward-thinking and unrestrained. It’s a genre-rejecting style that she’s named rainbowbass. Led by the early releases of Aphex Twin, Timbaland and Boards of Canada into the dark clubs of Berlin, Farina was a driver behind the 2010 formation of Through My Speakers. The event production collective has grown to become a burgeoning record label, thrusting underground producers and DJs onto the decks of progressive club nights and the playlists of bass fans across Europe and beyond. Her position as one of Berlin’s premier DJs is cemented at her regular night Rec Room at OHM with DJ Uta and Kepler, and enforced by her work behind the scenes at New Forms at Watergate, a collaborative endeavour she runs alongside DBridge, Kabuki, and a number of artists from her Through My Speakers family.
