Remixes are a bit of a gamble.
Sometimes, a song beckons to be untouched in all its perfect simplicity but then, an artist like André Allen Anjos (RAC) stretches, bends, and amplifies something you thought was never malleable to begin with.
“Manifest the old or recreate the new and what you’re left with is a thing of beauty.”
“Drifting”, originally composed by On an On, warps into a rhythmic anthem of kaleidoscopic beats and chords from the off.
The track creates a dreary atmosphere however juxtaposed with its own lyrical rapture but, that is precisely what makes this record ravishingly divine.
