Just in case you didn’t get your fill with the vibrant Trail Mix EP, Public Release have returned with another bag of assorted treats. They say variety is the spice of life and bringing four fresh reinterpretations of the Earth Boys originals to the table, Tim Sweeney and Philip Lauer (under the guise T&P), Italians Do It Better founder Mike Simonetti and 1080p affiliate Dylan “Khotin” Foote are all credited with a remix. Turning our attention to the Khotin effort, ‘Big Time’s original piano motif finds itself in good company as the Vancouver native ditches the swinging drums, favouring tape saturated breaks, twinkling synth patterns and a simmering acid line instead. Comparatively rugged and boisterous, those elements still work against a dreamy backdrop reminiscent of Foote’s earlier productions, notably the recent EPs under his Waterpark alias.
The Trail Remix EP is out January 12th on Public Release.
