Remixing Hudson Mohawke is a very bold move. I mean, the guy produced for Kanye’s and Drake’s grammy-nominated albums, not to mention his explosive individual and collaborative productions. Since the demise of TNGHT, the focus has been on his solo career, with his latest single “Chimes” being the talk of the town. Oh yeah it was also featured on the new Apple commercial, no biggie. So you can see why I was skeptical to listening to any remixes of it.
However, I was thoroughly impressed by the take from Bristol native Maxx Baer. He’s done so well, that it’s outshone the original. Maxx adds sparking future bass synths that give the track a more laid back feel compared to it’s brash horns and raw 808 kicks. The sound design is on point and it’s like a whole new track has been created. What’s even greater is that it’s a free download, so what are you waiting for!
