I decided to take a listen to a tune recommended to me by a friend the other day and I am glad I did. Music producers Cosmo&Paat put their computer music making skills to good use laying out an atmospheric electro spin on Flume’s huge track “Sleepless”. There have been a ridiculous amounts of remixes of this song over the past year often being spurred on by big website remix contests but nothing really measured up anywhere near the original. Until this tune. Right out the gate a flood of anticipation rushed over me as if I had just jumped out of an airplane and I found myself floating along waiting for the exact moment to drop my electronic parachute. As my tension builds and my mind becomes clear, my electro chute is pulled and the ride down is quite exhilarating. The remix is full of beautiful musical textures on top of an amazing synth house layer and the intermittent splashes of cut-up vocals make this a truly memorable rework.
I have provided Flume’s original version of “Sleepless” for comparison purposes and just for being a musical creation worthy of numerous remixing attempts. Also check out Cosmo&Paat’s take on a massive Flying Lotus tune. It’s really good. As always, check TMH! out on Facebook and hit that like button.
