Be Morais

With Be Morais’ remix of Stas Drive out now on Keep Thinking, we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?

1. Ruede Hagelstein – Leonidas (Original Mix) [Upon You Records]

“This track has been one of the most inspiring songs in the last few months for me. The arrangement, sound design and feelings have such a impact, I fell instantly in love with it. Particularly the huge drop, it makes me crawl every single time.”

2. Muui – Iusa (Original Mix) [microCastle]

“Muui is one of my bigger references these days. Iusa brings what I most like about his music: dense atmosphere, solid grooves and an intense driving vibe.”

3. Shades of Light – Behavioral Techrapy (Original Mix) [Not Another]

“I have been playing Behavior Techrapy for a long time now. It is a singular song, very powerful. Both the original and Comuno’s remix have a very special vibe; the first is larger and more aggressive, the remix more intimate and beautiful in a way.”

4. Booka Shade – Night Falls (Nils Frahm Rework) [Blaufield M10]

“Well, Nils Frahm is one of my favourite artists and one recently my most important source of inspiration. I listen to him every week, maybe everyday. This rework combines his harmonic/melodic ideas with a driving drum… what can I say? It’s beautiful”

5. Guy Gerber – Secret Encounters (Original Mix) [Rumors]

“I love the groovy hypnotic aspect of this track. It is sexy, mysterious and makes you want dance.”

6.  Navar & Mononoid – Versoene (Original Mix) [microCastle]

“This, alongside with Leonidas and Iusa, is one of my reference tracks these last months. Since I’ve heard it I knew exactly what was next for me musically. Hard grooves atmospheric and intriguing sounds!”

7. Be Morais – Beyond Illusions (Sam Pauli Remix) [Not Another]

“Sam’s remix was capable to show me another side of my own track. He captured the feelings behind, shaping into a very different perspective, yet keeping its essence. This is the most beautiful track in the EP, contrasting with the dark, harsh sounds of the originals and providing a blissful interpretation.”

8. Jamie Stevens – Traces (Original Mix) [Crossfrontier Audio]

“Very strong track! Strong groove, percussion, perfect very versatile, thinking on a mixing point of view”

9. Dave Seaman – NightFalls (Original Mix) [Selador]

“Both Original and Lee Van Dowski Remix are very powerful stuff! Love the vocals and the housy vibes inside a techno perspective.”

10. Stas Drive – I Feel Her Butterfly (Be Morais Remix) [Keep Thinking]

“Since I heard the original, I love the organic elements in “ I feel Her Butterfly”. The mandolin was a very interesting element to work with. Since the original has such a great vibe, it was challenging to find a different way to interpret this one. I’m very happy with the result and had a lot of fun working with the ideas of Stas Drive original mix.”
