Alex Metric returns with his first remix of 2015, reworking Everything Everything’s current single, ‘Distant Past’, into a rubbery electronic delight.
The main feature is the chubby bassline, which is then paired up with distant vocals and snappy percussion. It then begins to build up a head of steam with the introduction of a galvanising lead synth, which then makes way for one of Metric protracted breakdowns – but from then on it doesn’t actually hit how you might think, it’s almost an anti-breakdown if such a thing exists.
All-in-all it’s everything you could ever want from a remix of Everything Everything.
Everything Everything’s second album, ‘Get to Heaven’, is due out June 15.
