Tokyo based singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Maika Loubté has a brand new remix! “Show Me How” is now available, starting today, to stream and view.
This ethereal take maintains the similar emotion of the original track, while giving it a new life by adding light, youthful, and percussive energy. Kan Sano, a keyboardist, remixer, and producer has worked with many artists across Japan and he is regarded as one of the most important figures in the country’s music scene today.
Last October, Loubté released the original version to coincide with a national advertising campaign for Mazda’s MAZDA MX-30 newest car that featured this song and Maika also appeared in this TV commercial. With a unique approach through her music, Maika expresses the challenges and importance of communication which has resonated with audiences throughout Japan and abroad making “Show Me How” a hit amongst her fans and one of her most streamed songs to date.
From the Press Release:
About the new remix, Maika comments, “‘Show Me How,’ with its introspective lyrics and analog texture, was remixed by Kan Sano to give it a youthful and hopeful energy. As the world continues to battle through challenges in 2021, I hope this track can bring everyone around the globe some light and make them want to dance into a new era.” Kan Sano adds “I never thought I would be remixing one of my favorite songs from last year! Since I love Maika’s song so much, my challenge was not to tamper with the arrangement too much. I can’t quite surpass the splendor of the original, but I think I was able to create a different expression of ‘Show Me How.’ With Maika’s voice being so special, I was reassured that no matter how the song was reworked, her vocals would make the track turn out just fine. Through the remixing process, I realized once again the beauty of the melody and lyrics in her songwriting.”
Maika also has a new music video which accompanies the remix that was filmed in one take at the Institut français du Japon in Tokyo.
