Phauler X Ofelija – Wicked Games (Official Video)
Starting the day off with a super dope cover and a beautiful visual to match. Slovakia producer, Phauler, teamed up with singer-songwriter Ofelija on a chill-house remake of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games.” This is the second release from Phauler this year and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. With a chill, but dark vibe, this track creates an atmosphere that will draw in listeners from multiple genres.
The flute lead and synth plucks mixed with Ofelija’s laid back vocals are carried by a steady kick and various other percussion sprinkled throughout. This track is absolutely radio-ready and definitely has the potential to be one of 2019’s biggest releases. The EQing, mixing, and mastering allow room for each instrument and the vocals to fit together perfectly. There are a ton of tracks out there that seem to have extra sounds that don’t need to be there, but Phauler’s execution of the production is a great example of mastering a craft.
