Utilising the glorious strings and lush textures of the original the remix turns it into a leftfield hip hop beat which mutates into glitch inspired downtempo IDM.

You can listen to it on Spotify here:
Recently Rook Records requested a video DJ mix for their new YouTube channel and I saw it as an opportunity to test out some AV ideas I’ve been working on.
The visuals were made using a combination of video footage run through my own custom coded Cycling ’74 MAX/MSP patches, Tachyons + analogue hardware, and an old CRT TV.
The music tracks span electronica, hip hop and glitch, combining newer discoveries alongside more well known artists. Some highlights imo are: my new remix for Tristan de Liège, and awesome tunes from Shrimpnose, K.Raydio, Kenny Segal and s.maharba
Hope you like it!
