Nice. It’s been a little while since we’ve heard a new remix from Star Slinger, the U.K. based beatsmith who who has a real fondness for splicing music (from r&b and hip hop to shoegaze), sampling copiously and implementing beats into his songs as often possible.
The artist, born Darren Williams, had reworked a fair bit of indie jams this year, including How To Dress Well’s standout “Ready For The World,” and has just tackled the lead single from hazy synth-pop ambassador Washed Out’s lead single “Eyes Be Closed” from his debut full length, Within And Without. Williams makes some very considerable alterations, changing the pitch of Ernest Greene’s vocals, and turning “Eyes Be Closed” from a deep, ethereal experience into a light, fluffy pop jam.
