Queen Of Lo-Fi Eevee remixes a Christmas basic ‘Silent Evening’ and talks about adapting to motherhood
Christmas time is a little over a month away, but the gifts arrived earlier this season. Often aptly referred to as the Queen of Lo-Fi, Eevee, the prolific 27-year-old producer from the Netherlands, released a new remix in time for the holidays.
Sharing the holiday spirit with everyone who hears the lo-fi maestro and the genius behind records like “Viola” and “Mis t” is back to direct an age-old Christmas classic “Silent Night”, their first release since giving it Birth of a beautiful boy. Read what Eevee had to say about the recent events in her life.
How do you prepare for motherhood?
Being a mother is a big change in my life and I am slowly getting used to it. At first I felt a little overwhelmed because I got sick for three weeks after I was born. Now I’m feeling better. I have a lot more energy to take care of my little one and my music / work life. I’m very curious about the things that are to come and what our future will be like, but I mostly live in the moment and take it day by day.
What comes next?
I recently did a remix for World of Warcraft which will be out on my Spotify on December 4th. I hope to be able to release Beat Tape 11 this year and am working on a new EP for 2021.
Any fun future plans for Secret Souls?
We have a new release on December 11th. It’s a VIP track from ‘Runaway’ from Naski, which is pretty exciting. At the end of December we have a second Shöckface release. We are also planning to release more lo-fi tracks on the label. We recently released our first noirebeats lo-fi beat and we have another beat in January.
How has your workflow and life changed since you had your boy?
It is no longer a matter of course to have time for yourself or to do music / work. Isaiah prefers to be with me all the time. Now I’m putting it in a carry-on bag so I can work or make music. I feel like I appreciate more the time I have to myself now. I am happy if I can make music for an hour. I still find my balance in this new life and as a single mother. I just take it with the day and see where we go.
Eevee’s remix ‘Silent Night’ is sure to make fun of you too. The remix stays true to itself while maintaining the original integrity of the song while weaving its hazy percussion and floating melodies throughout the record. Silent Night (eevee Remix) will get listeners out of 2020 and immerse them in a blissful soundscape that escapes this unpredictable year. There’s no better way to end November and start December by kicking back, snuggling up to a warm fireplace and serenading yourself to the Silent Night – eevee Remix.
