As is oftentimes the expectation, dirtybird boss and opening act on Disclosure’s American tour Claude Vonstroke (pictured) has opted to go long and funky in his tech house take on the brothers Lawrence’s Caracal album single Omen, which features Sam Smith.
Caracal’s out on Sept. 25, and Vonstroke’s remix certainly ramps up the expectation not just for the album itself, but for the likely impressive myriad styles of remixes to come for the release’s singles. Vonstroke’s brilliance is illustrated in how he wraps a warping bassline around the synths stabbing into the bottom end. As well, layering a looped snippet of Sam Smith’s vocal on top of the track really sets off the thumping funk groove.
There is no word as to when official Caracal album remixes will be available for sale, but do stream the remix above, and pre-order Caracal here.
