This is a combination I was very happy to find out about. Mount Kimbie have followed the release of their second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth with a new remix EP CSFLY Remixes. This record features a number of remixes by Kyle Hall, Oneman and Lee Gamble but the most exciting is DJ Koze’s eight minute rework of Made To Stray.
DJ Koze’s newest release, Amygdala, was a seamless blend of psychedelia and tech-house. A record that tried to imitate an hallucinogenic trip and succeeded, making it both imaginative and rewarding to listen to. On his Made To Stray remix DJ Koze adds his own signature sound, stretching out Mount Kimbie’s sporadic beats and layering them with psychedelic wisps and whistles. It feels like you have been taken to another plane entirely before the vocals return and ground you back into reality.
CSFLY Remixes is due to be released on October 28th (29th in North America) via Warp Records.
