Cyril Hahn – Slow feat. Rochelle Jordan

The best music is made by those who expose our very guilty pleasures with undeniable, stimulating creations. This can be said of the mere samples we have received from rising producer Cyril Hahn. Cyril experimented early on during high school with music production and abandoned it after leaving his hometown of Bern, Switzerland to pursue his studies in Vancouver, Canada. After a 3 year hiatus from music, feeling a need to return to his former love, he sat down and did what is considered by some to be taboo: stripped down two iconic R&B songs and gave them his unique atmospheric twist: Mariah Carey’s ‘Touch My Body’ and Destiny’s Child ‘Say My Name’. Cyril’s remixes instantly hit a nerve with internet fans and other artists after uploading to his Soundcloud, especially the Destiny’s Child anthem. This summer, ‘Say My Name’ hit #1 on Hype Machine, was selected as the final track by Diplo for his BBC Radio 1 mix show, and posted as a favourite on the fan page of global trendsetting group, The xx. This fall Annie Mac also fell in love with the song, playing it on her radio show, at many of her shows and mentioning it as one of her addictive tracks of the year. ‘Say My Name’ now has over 600,000 plays on Soundcloud, countless tribute videos with over 2 million YouTube views, and is considered by many to be a favourite of 2012. Toward the end of the year, Cyril released 3 other remixes that have also become crowd favourites: a hauntingly melodious remix of UK Electropop duo Alpines single ‘Chances’, followed by the atmospheric remix of Solange’s ‘Losing You’, and the up-tempo, high-energy remix for U.S sister trio HAIM’s ‘Don’t Save Me’ (No.2 Hype Machine).

Brand new from Vancouver producer Cyril Hahn, “Slow” ft. Rochelle Jordan. Taken from his forthcoming EP with PMR, “Slow” is a dreamy, R&B stunner. It was premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, the vocals from Canada’s Rochelle Jordan sit perfectly within his floating soundscape, there’s no doubt it’ll be a regular on the airwaves throughout summer.

Cyril Hahn – Slow feat. Rochelle Jordan Lyrics:
I see you around
I been feelin’ you like you’re about
I really wanna take you down,
Hearing you clear and loud, loud
And I could tell you’re the type to get satisfied, babe
But then I hit the brakes, whoa

Do you even know my name?
So many things to think about,
Time I have it got out,
But I’m the kind of girl that like
Haven’t moved so far ahead
But tell me one thang, babe

Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that?
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that?
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know, oh, oh
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that and go
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
Because I really want, really want
Really wanna get to know you

[Rochelle Jordan:]
Playing with my head,
You’re making all the right moves tonight
As if I’m here to say all the things I meant, meant
I need to leave with you tonight with a dignified me
I try to play it close
But I got my hands on you and you got your hands on me,
Oh, I must be crazy, we must be crazy
I know we’re speeding, tell me

Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that?
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know, oh, oh
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that and go
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
Because I really want, really want
Really wanna get to know, oh, oh
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Do you mind if we talk like that?
Do you mind if we take it slow?
Because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, yeah, because I really want, really want
I really wanna get to know you.
