Idfc (Tarro Remix) – BlackbearJanuary 6, 2016
Blackbear‘s “Idfc” is an ode to heartbreak, to hoping for a crumb of affection, to trying to protect your own heart by just not caring. Tarro‘s remix brings a new level to this song by adding his own emotional sculpting to the instrumental. While the original maintains a minimal aesthetic to enhance the stress, the expectation of release, and the tension of the lyrics, the remix delivers musical responses to the lyrics. When Blackbear sings about words slurring, Tarro chops and screws the line. When Blackbear’s voice raises to cry out that he’s “only a fool for you”, Tarro drops the instrumental down several notches to showcase the naked loneliness in the vocals. While Blackbear sings almost without break, purging himself of these feelings, Tarro gives us an instrumental hook to follow Blackbear’s declaration of uncaring; and it’s gorgeous. Tarro uses the future synths that have been getting a lot of play these days and he uses them well. Give it a listen to decide which version you like better.
