It’s been a while since we heard from The Golden Filter, always one of the most innovative and interesting Disco acts around, since their soundtrack second album and accompanying film ‘Syndromes’, so for them to be breaking back into our consciousness reMixing one of our all time favourites, Saint Etienne, it a thing of pure awesome.
The New York duo’s version of ‘I’ve Got Your Music’ is a stripped down, moody, dancefloor tune built up on Moroder-esque basslines, warm synths and ‘70’s electronic toms. Completely changing the mood of the track, from euphoric ode to DancePop into something more mysterious, more enigmatic, The Golden Filter leave their calling cards all over these six minutes. Just check out the drop mid-way, the silence only broken by an eerie held note leading to tribal drums and magical arpeggios before dropping right back into to the groove. Drawing on vintage Disco and Italo, this reMix is more reminiscent of the likes of ‘Solid Gold’ than The Golden Filter’s newer output, I wonder what this bodes for the future of the twosome?
‘Words And Music By Saint Etienne’ is released 21st May.
