2014 Pemberton Music And Arts Festival

It’s already been six months since Toronto R&B duo dvsn released their debut album, Sept. 5. After wrapping up their tour in June, Paul Jefferies — aka Nineteen85 — and Daniel Daley are back with a heavenly remix of Frank Ocean‘s “Godspeed.” The remix premiered via OVO Sound Radio over the weekend.

While “Godspeed” was otherwise sparse and minimal, the remix finds Jefferies filling in the gaps with soft-hitting percussion. Daley also lends his vocals about midway, turning “Godspeed” into what could have easily been a duet.

“Somebody pointed out to me the other day that we make positive music,” Jefferies shared during an interview with NOW Toronto in July. “I was like, ‘Do we?’ It’s not trying to be. I just think a lot of music right now is really angry.”

“Everybody needs something at the end of the day to reassure them the world they live in is a good world,” Daley added. “It’s a continuous battle just to find a feeling of comfort.”

The pair also shared remixes of Aaliyah‘s “One In A Million” and Marvin Gaye‘s “Let’s Get It On” on OVO Sound Radio back in March.
