This week’s Rendition features remixes by Henry Krinkle, BAILE, and LuQus. As always, the original is included for you to judge which version is better.
Sundara Karma – “Vivienne” (Henry Krinkle remix)
The most impressive remixes are, in my opinion, those that can considerably slow down a track to the point where you almost don’t notice it. Sure the most popular remixes are those that are sped up and can blaze through the strobe lights of a club and its dizzying patrons, but there are hundreds of thousands of such remixes out there. What Los Angeles-based producer Henry Krinkle has done to Sundara Karma‘s “Vivienne” is spectacular. The transformation of this mid-tempo, indie-pop-rock song is breathtaking, where not even frontman Oscar Pollock‘s vocals are noticeable. Judge for yourself if the remix is worthy of praise.
Seoul – “The Line” (BAILE remix)
Earlier this year, Montreal’s Seoul released a sensual new album, I Become a Shade. But how do you take one of the album’s most breathtaking songs, “The Line”, and make it even more atmospheric? It’s not an easy thing to do, but New York City producer BAILE, a quiet favorite in these parts, has done just that. His remix of “The Line” is alluring and intoxicating. He’s added a few subtle beats, slightly changed the tempo, and stripped the song down to its essential components. It’s easy to get lost in the fog of this gorgeous remix.
Sam Frankl – “Macondo” (LuQus remix)
What happens when you get one producer remixing another producer’s music? It happens more than one thinks, but it’s a great compliment being expressed by one peer to another. About a month ago, South London producer Sam Frankl released the stunning and soothing “Macondo”. Shortly after the song was made available, fellow London producer LuQus spiced the track up. Retaining the ethereal nature of the song, LuQus added a few more touches to make the track even more dramatic. Both versions are great, emphasizing subtlety over the emphatic.
