It was a great opportunity to mess with the work of Benny Tones (who also mastered 'Four' for me), especially a track with the vox of Electric Wire Hustle's Mara TK on it. Still pretty stoked with the results - hope you enjoy.
Wellington act Cold Eyes put out an EP called 'Young Adults' last month and has followed it up with a bonus release, 'Younger', which is packed with remixes and a few other unreleased bits. Listen to my Jet Jaguar remix below or click the links in that last sentence. (Duh!)
I'm releasing 'Four' tomorrow. Over the week I've been serving up each of the 7 remixes that make up half the tracks, along with the relevant original track. At any time, check in on the Soundcloud set for the album to listen to all the tracks uploaded so far, including a free download of one of the originals, 'Awry Smile'. You can pre-order the album as a $5 DL or $15 CD too.
Fuck this guy. He goes and makes all these great beats, including an EP I was even kind enough to go on about last year. I deliberately seek out beatmakers for remixes, setting up a nice angle for this release. He picks the most Dilla-flavoured beat from the originals. And then turns in a completely beatless remix built entirely around layering up heaps of horn parts.
