The award-winning 16-year-old, Kacey Fifield, is known for her artistic finesse as a singer-songwriter. Now, going worldwide with her recently released single, “Confused,” Kacey Fifield teams up with various producers in order to bring a newfound dimension to the release that was brought to the ears of the public earlier in 2021.
We always love a good remix, but Kacey Fifield ensures we have an array of sounds to choose from with this ingenious approach. Looking to cater to her ever-growing fan base in the way she knows best, the notable melancholy that lies within the picturesque resonance of “Confused,” is transformed at an all-time high. Three producers mean three various remixes that we get to fully absorb ourselves in.
Starting with the Ricardo Padua version, this won’t be the first time that the two creatives have linked up in order to bring a refreshing take on her poignant musical expressions. Allowing the piano forward essence of this song to still triumph in its original realm, the addition of ambient synths and golden horn notes propels the conscious resonance of Kacey Fifield’s angelic timbres in a new light.
Compared to the altered approach that the Netherlands' very own Bassanova provides, we get to see “Confused” thrive on the opposite side of the spectrum. Combining weighty bass elements to capture the peaks and valleys of Kacey Fifield’s vocalization, the emphasis still remains on the lyrical motifs protruding from the passion-fueled energy of the emerging artist. Keeping listeners on their toes as we embrace this unorthodox approach, we have to admit that the allure offered has us fans of the unexpected.
Perfecting this trio with Aless Vanco’s more melodic approach to the electronic elements showcased, there’s a mainstream appeal that takes over with the Belgium producer's rendition of “Confused.” The intensity that sculpts the sentimental timbres of Kacey Fifield has us admiring her in this Electro-Pop spotlight. Proving that with the right elements her vocal range is redefining versatility, we simmer in the brilliance that is this high octane buoyancy.
Knowing the way into our hearts, there’s a Kacey Fifield for every mood we go through. Keeping her closely on our radar, we can’t wait to hear what she does for us next.
This approach to “Confused” has us captivated by the flexibility you hold in your artistry! What a great concept. What inspired you to take this approach to the sounds of “Confused”?
I absolutely love the work of all 3 producers that remixed the song, so of course I wanted to hear their takes on it! Each of their individual perspectives on the song is so incredible and I'm extremely happy with how the remixes turned out.
Working with international producers is a great feat in itself. How did these collaborations come to be, and how did Ricardo Padua, Bassanova, and Aless Vanco take your vision to new heights?
I've worked with Ricardo Padua in many of my earlier releases, so hearing his take on my song was amazing! Bassanova and Aless Vanco are both super talented producers as well; I met them through other people in the industry and am so glad that we got to work together. Each producer had such a unique take on the song, all of which were amazing!
We admire how you have such a mature lane carved out for yourself at 16-years-old. What has played a role in the way that you approach your lyrics in “Confused”? For those who haven’t yet heard the original version, what can they expect from the themes addressed in this track?
Writing "Confused," I wanted to describe the struggles that various people, including myself, are facing during the currently overwhelming circumstances caused by the pandemic. I think everyone has experienced a certain degree of despondency at least once in their lives, so I wanted to communicate that through the song.
What was running through your mind the first time that you heard these remixes? Do you think this is an approach that artists everywhere should take towards their music?
I was so delighted to hear how incredible they sounded! I think that remixes are a great way for artists to hear other producers' takes on their songs, so I think it's definitely a valuable approach.
What's next for you?
I'm currently working on a bunch of new releases. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements!
