A: To The South

B: To The South – Matt O’Brien Remix

Buy here

The Kid of Sweden delivers a limited 12″ with one of the heaviest tracks that passed along this year. The focus on the original is around a hard hitting, no frills but yet so funky groove combined with a swirling synthline that appears from now and then, getting transformed to various shapes – and then suddenly stops to make room for the heavyweight beat. Excellent work that surley will break your subs.

Matt O’Brien’s remix takes the track to a different level, with a dub vibe combined with static percussion and a different depth in the rhythm. Nautical spheres that gets entangled in The Subliminal Kid’s atmospheric melody, that also get’s a treatment from O’Brien who shuffles the notes around to create a different sound.

Absolute destroyer.
