Shlohmo’s 2015 Dark Red album showcased an impressive array of diverse and deep sounds. Now, he’s recruited an all-star cast of Baauer, Chet Faker, Jacques Greene, and Jim-E Stack for his new four-track Dark Red Remixes EP.
Stack’s take on Slow Descent is a pleasantly disarming soul groove featuring various percussive elements rattling against an ambient bassline. Ten Days of Falling gets two separate takes from Jacques Greene and Baauer. The former is a supple groove, made so by pendulum-style breaks against a simmering lead synth. Baauer goes less Harlem Shake and more Harlem soul as he delivers a track soaked in ambient feels and a glistening, pop-aimed funk. Chet Faker closes out the series by swirling his own top-line vocals into the mix on Remains, which actually opens up the production a bit and gives it profoundly heaving and yearning quality.
