Here’s just one of the reMixes of the amazing AlunaGeorge’s new single Your Drums, Your Love. Alongside the reMix package featuring Duke Dumont, the Prototypes and Deebs, Bedford’s Lil Silva steps up to give the track a shuffling, glitch workout.
We were lucky enough to catch AlunaGeorge live last weekend at Bestival, they were everything we’d hoped they were. Slick and sexy, playing late on Sunday they were the perfect end to the festival. Lil Silva takes the impassioned warmth of their new single and applies it to spikey drums and a UK Bass flavour. The reMix is loaded with intricate layers of sound, there’s so much to hear in this mix. And it’s funky too. It;s a harsh urban groove that shouldn’t sit well with Aluna’s sweet vocal, but somehow really does.
♫ AlunaGeorge – Your Drums, Your Love (Lil Silva reMix)
AlunaGeorge’s Your Drums, Your Love is released 7th October.
OK, someone’s just massing with me now. It’s bad enough that track ten on Nite Jewel beautiful current album ‘One Second Of Love’ freaks me the hell out, it’s called ‘Clive’, which does my head in. But now they get Dntel to weird it up even further?
Dntel is, of course, Jimmy Tamborello who was one half of The Postal Service, who’s ‘Give Up’ was possible the best album of 2003 (whoa! was it that long ago?), so if they’re going to get anyone to twist up my namesake then I’m happy he’s the guy. The reMix is amazingly innovative, chopping up the vocals into new melodies to layer alongside his glitchy beats a wonderfully emotive synth sounds. Ramona Gonzalez take on a whole new beauty as an instrument, becoming part of the wall of dreamlike noise, kept in check with a steady dancefloor beat. And, yes, it does sound a little like the Postal Service.
♫ Nite Jewel – Clive (Dntel reMix)
Nite Jewel’s ‘One Second Of Love’ album is out now.
I kinda’ liked the last Squarepusher album ‘Just A Souvenir’, it was the same insane Glitch-Drum & Bass-Jazz-Experimental nonsense you should be used to with Squarepusher but seemed to have all these crazy Pop overtones.
You’ve really got to be in the mood for Squarepusher though!
