As featured in Benjamin Mattingly's celebrated, full length film 'Electric Heart', Adnan Jakubovic's 'Afraid of Happiness' now sees its official single release through Suffused Music. Originally a standout on the label's 'Initializing' Vol. V collection from May of 2015 it showcased the Bosnian born, Germany based artist at his creative best with it's tough yet spacey, deeply emotional narrative. Much hype and critical acclaim have surrounded the composition since being showcased in the film's stylish soundtrack last year. Now as 2018 begins to unfold Suffused Music presents two equally anticipated remixes from Tim Robert and Alinep.

USA based artist Tim Robert has become loved throughout the progressive underground for his old school sound. Looking to break out in 2018 Tim now presents one of his all time best remixes, taking 'Afraid of Happiness' into dark and driving territory. The toughness of the original is well maintained, complemented with a warm, fluid foundation and spacey effects. It's most astral qualities feature heavily in the break, with a cosmic storyboard which borders on the surreal, before a smooth energy bridge carries perfectly into a stunning third act finale.

The second and final interpretation is provided by Alinep who is making his label debut. Born and raised in Manilla, Ali Nepomuceno aka Alinep has a meticulous discography, highlighted by releases on Tenampa Recordings and Rezongar Music. His Suffused Music debut does not disappoint as he brings a more stripped back, techno inspired approach to 'Afraid of Happiness'. Conveying the toughness of the original nicely, it's robust framework is complemented with clustered claps, chugging rhythms and fiery electronics. Split up by two timely breaks a ghostly vocal narrative adds depth and mystery upon setting up an invigorating finale. It rounds out what is undoubtedly one of Suffused Music's most talked about and highly anticipated projects to date. Don't miss it.
