Why we liked SCRATON’s take
From its opening notes to its final echoes, SCRATON’s awe-inspiring take on Seawall skilfully and melodically turns Seawall into a sonic odyssey complete with melodies riding on tropical waves, and captivating us at every turn. From the glitches and scratches punctuating every twist and turn, we felt this remix retained the spirit of the original but with a refreshing spin and a catchy vocal hook. The strength of SCRATON’s production lies in their attention to detail, which is nothing short of outstanding.

Why we liked Fade2Green’s take
Ushering the listener with those minor chords and under-pinned by whispering vocals, Fade2Green’s remix descends into a break where Neev's voice is transformed into a hypnotic, choral chant. Excitement builds as the vocals spiral and swell, enveloping the listener into the sounds of Seawall. Fade2Green's remix is a testament to a finely-tuned ear for detail and texture, presenting us with a creative reimagining of Neev’s original. The auditory scenes painted by Fade2Green solidifies their position as an exciting producer we’d love to hear more from!

Why we liked Baribal’s take
Lush chords weave through the beats, creating a rhythmic interplay that shines a light on this interpretation in Baribal’s remix of Seawall. It is an unforgettable earworm, lingering in the mind long after the headphones have been taken off. We particularly loved the UK Garage section towards the end of the mix taking it up another notch! To our judging panel, it was this playful and memorable interpretation that truly set it apart.
