On the back of the release of his latest album ‘The Work’, out now via the always brilliant City Slang label, Darwin Dicker aka Gold Panda has revealed a new Skee Mask remix of his recent single Plastic Future.
Speaking about the collaboration, Derwin said: “The first time I heard Skee Mask was on a rainy bus journey on a gloomy weekday from my house to the city. ’50 Euro To Break Boost’ fit perfectly with vehicle lights filtered through rain streaming down the windows. I’m so lucky to have a remix and to hear that he liked my music. It’s nice to find out that ‘Lucky Shiner’ was a gateway drug into electronic music for a lot of people who are now making music much better than mine haha. I feel like this remix has all the hallmarks of a classic Skee track. It’s proper!”
The remix takes things to the club as it fizzes and bubbles away, sprawling percussion and beats pepper the outer edges of the track, before a harder edge comes in and contrasts with the woozy, hazy like chords and melancholy melodic fragments into something near the dancefloor, just not quite fully on it. And I mean that in the loveliest, most interesting way.
