As East India Youth embarks on an extensive tour with Kendal four piece Wild Beasts, the London producer and all round musical aficionado has thrown us a parting gift in the form of a remix of his tour companions’ track ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth’. I know what you’re thinking: “remixes are just the original track with a few beeps and boops under the surface”. Well, you’re wrong, buddy! East India Youth has unpicked all the seams and stitched together a completely different beast. The remix has taken the major elements of the track and orchestrated them into an expanse of atmospheric beauty that sounds nothing like the original, but has somehow maintained the essential essence of the song. In other words, it’s a outstanding lesson in how to remix.
