Young Turks latest signing, Lauren Flax’s Creep are giving away the Soul Clap reMix of their début single ‘Days’.
This reMix doesn’t feature on the single, which features Romy from The XX on vocals, and brings a shilling beat and a bit of funk to the dark minimal original. I’m not going to call the original either Trip-Hop (‘cos it’s not) or Witch-House (‘cos that’s just a ridiculous term), it’s got more in common with Minimal Synth than anything else. Anyway, check the reMix for some dark 90’s electronic Funk.
He describes himself as IDM based Hip Hop, which actually might be more apt considering some of the things going on in his sonic landscape, but it’s still Dubstep, and some pretty fine Dubstep it is too! Intricate sounds filter in and out and give way to aggressive leads throughout his original track ‘Shorty’, but his reMix of The XX’s ‘Infinity’ is the real standout here with all the elements you want from a storming Dubstep tune.
We’ve had a couple of reMixes of The XX (who, apparently, haven’t split up) drop into the electronic rumors Inbox this week, so listen up!
Dave Wrangler take on the track ‘Stars’ and ends up with an almost old school EBM powerhouse, all heavy kick drum and arpeggios which seems to counterpoint the sparkling melody line.
Popular Damage assimilate ‘Crystalised’ and produce something equally as heavy. This time, though, it’s a big Electro banger that we find with some choppy distorted lead lines worthy of Justice and floor shaking drums.
