SCINTII

SCINTII shares new track "Times New Roman (Loraine James Remix)" out now via Houndstooth Records.

After recently signing to Houndstooth and sharing her new single "Times New Roman", Shanghai-based Taiwanese singer-producer Scintii is sharing a new rework of the track by Loraine James, which follows on from a Palmistry remix unveiled last week.

North London native Loraine James is an electronic producer who effortlessly blends electronica and IDM with whispers of jazz and ambience. James' has re-imagined Scintii's recent single into an enticing new realm, marking another new chapter for "Times New Roman".

Scintii makes music that is neither obviously for the club nor is it synth-pop, instead forging a cyber-sleek and moody late-night electronica.

 “I don’t really think about genre. I think about what I'm trying to communicate – an atmosphere,

or an emotion"

she says.


"Times New Roman" was co-written with PC Music producer and musician, Danny L Harle on a trip to London in summer of 2019, after Harle invited her to his studio to record some sessions. 

"The main melody came to me while wandering round a shopping mall,"

she says, 

"but I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then I had the session with Danny and it just worked with the beat he was making. It really started to become about me feeling sure of myself as a musician

and producer, going in a new direction and really being able to maximise my own voice." 


With such instantly recognisable vocals, and a sound that is rooted in neither London nor Shanghai, "Times New Romanmarks Scintii out as one to watch.
