Dutch singer-songwriter-instrumentalist iET (a.k.a. Marjan Alise Theodora van Viegen) earned critical praise with 2014’s So Unreal, a collaboration of plaintive neo-soul songs created with Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu). After issuing her Inhale EP earlier this year, she will release her anticipated follow-up, Clarity, on September 2 and embark on a whirlwind tour of the Netherlands. iET tapped fellow countryman Binkbeats (a.k.a Frank Wienk) to put his touch on “Heavy on My Heart,” an evocative song from the album which we’re thrilled to world premiere. A musical powerhouse in his own right, Binkbeats, who typically colors his musical canvas with 50 instruments including vibraphone, guitar, turntables and even a typewriter when he performs live, embellishes the gorgeous track in his own inimitable way. “This song’s vibe I really felt deeply,” he says of his remix. “The empty arrangement gave me the freedom to put a darker depth to it.”
