It was up there with one of the best releases of the year, and now it’s been giving an all-star remix treatment. That’s right- four remixes have now been released from Shlohmo‘s brooding, mysterious Dark Red, and they are just as good as the originals which is really saying something.
Baauer, Jacques Green, Chet Faker and Jim-E Stack have all offered up their own takes on cuts from Dark Red, and have all brought their A-game by turning the tracks on their heads. Jim-E Stack’s percussion-led take on Slow Descent; Chet Faker providing some intimate and vulnerable vocals over Remains; Baauer and Jacques Green both choosing the stunning Ten Days of Falling to lend their signature touches to- these remixes provide even more mystery and depth to an already really dark, mysterious and deep record.
You can purchase the remixes on iTunes now, or head to his Soundcloud to download them for free. Shlohmo was in the country earlier this year for a quick jaunt around his Splendour In The Grass set, and will be wrapping up 2015 as one of the most successful years he has had. Whilst the unnerving sounds on Dark Red would have caught more than a few fans off guard, it has opened a new sonic chapter for Shlohmo. Here’s hoping we get a lot more of this next year!
