I just listened to it for the first time, fantastic track with a new type of sound, super refreshing to hear!
There is a lot of things going on dispite the beat sounding simple, as should be expected, almost brings me back to a Seeya Later type vibe, but the mixing and mastering is super duper polished. I love the tiny gaps of silence after a verse, and the Open The Light sample was used perfectly, didn't feel out of place at all.
Seriously vibing this tune, as always they impress me, the last Neverman remix took a while to grow on me mainly because of the vocal feeling a bit overused on the remix, but this track the vocals feel just right, I dont have a single issue with them.
There is some magic hidden away in this track behind the funk, absolutely the kind of thing I love and expect from BoC, gonna give this remix a few more spins but my first impression is that it's absolutely wonderful, a perfect blend of funky and dreamy.
EDIT: okay, really weird reading everyone elses opinions of the remix after I posted this.... "The Opening The Light sample is lazy", cmon, so they should recreate a different arp? or just not have done it at all? It's mixed into the track beautifully, it's a nice callback and doesnt feel like it's the centre focus of the track, I thought it was a wonderful use of the sample!
Quite frankly, after this remix, I'm absolutely stumped on the direction they're going.
Mr. Mistake: Tomorrow's Harvest style track. Possibly an outtake
Sisters: Weird Enya vox plus synth riff
Sometimes: Delightful Davyan Cowboy style crescendo
Treat Em Right: Old school 90s hip-hop filtered through Music Has The Right To Children.
Perhaps they are as confused as we are
To me remixes are meant to be completely devoid of any LP themes or styles, I wouldnt guess what their next LP would sound like based off of their remixes. I really like that with EP's and remixes an artist can go and do whatever they want, that always makes me happy. Even on singles that are parts of compilations, such as Korona or Seven Forty Seven, tracks that have a completely unique sound devoid of any LP attachment.
