“Since the original song is already a melodic house song, I was faced with the challenge of producing a slightly different track than I normally do. To give the song a breath of fresh air, I decided to go in the direction of an Afro house song, which was a completely new genre for me. The lead element and vocals of the original song coupled with some new chords and drums worked very well together in the end and I was able to produce a song that is very different from the original.”

[ Artist Bio – Farves]
Farves has dedicated himself to the production of house songs, whereby he places great value on the details and perfectionism of his productions.
His sonic approach is characterised above all by clear emotions and pure sound selection. His sound palette is infused with manifest structure, warm well-meaning melodies and a certain “warm” vibe. His roots can be found in the house scene, which has influenced his sound.
[ Artist Bio – Angara]
Angara portrays a landscape where seemingly opposed emotions are woven together.
Combining sensitive and soothing melodies with engaging rhythms and atmospheres, their music conveys the feeling of getting carried away in the world of the listener’s own imagination.
It all started in the late 2000s when Loris & Quentin met in the south of France, sharing their first music productions as teenagers. Almost a decade later, life brought them back together and shaped their musical complementarity into a proper tandem project.
They released their very first single “Side Roads” on music platforms in 2018 and it ranked #14 in Spotify’s ‘Top 50 Viral France’, followed by their downtempo track “Memory Lane” which brought them attention outside their native country. Shortly after, they started collaborating with influential YouTube channel and label ElectroPosé on several releases such as “Vision” and “Drive” that reached Deezer’s most-followed playlist.
They have then twisted to a more danceable vision and a true desire to bring their music to the dance floors and festivals, releasing two driving Melodic House EP “Rwanda” and “Prove” respectively on Monstercat Silk and Enhanced Music Colorize which received big supports from the likes of Lane 8, Above & Beyond, Sultan + Shepard or Don Diablo.
The name Angara originally comes from the eponym river in Siberia. It originally referred to natural elements and the movement/flow of it – ex : freedom of the water streaming along the valley and the imagination of landscapes.
[ Release Info ]
German producer Farves has completely reimagined Angara’s euphoric single “Renaissance” to shape it into a glossy and serene experience for listeners.
In the span of just 2 two years, Farves has quickly cemented his place as a rising star in the melodic house scene. This sentiment has been backed by Nora En Pure and Sultan + Shepard through their continuous support, and he’s appeared in Spotify editorials such as Chillout Lounge and Chill Tracks. The French duo Angara has also been praised by the likes of Sultan + Shepard, Lane 8, and Above & Beyond for their emotive sound, and their single “Renaissance” confirms why they’re a promising act to watch. In Farve’s rendition of Angara’s “Renaissance”, we are welcomed to a florid yet calming atmosphere that lightly captures the euphoric feelings found in the original. Piano chords coupled with chants in the background heighten the emotive effect here, and these are just a few elements that make this feel like such a tear-jerker.
This is not only the first time Farves has released with Stereofox, but it’s also the first time he has had to lean into a completely different genre in order to craft a remix that sounds unique.
