elbow release a limited 12” of remixes of tracks from their critically acclaimed Top Ten “Cast of Thousands” LP on October 27th.
New set opener “Ribcage” is transformed by Andy Cato (ex Groove Armada) into a dark and dangerous stomp, replete with analogue squelches a plenty and a thumping backbeat.
UK Hip Hop’s rising star RJD2 takes on forthcoming single and live heartbreaking favourite “Fugitive Motel”. Taking Guy Garvey’s emotion drenched vocals as it’s starting point, the mix drops heavy electric piano and floating strings to turn a romatic lament into something far more threatening.
Kinobe’s version of “Ribcage” drops a heavy beat over twisting downbeat effects and mutli layered vocals to draw out the pyschedelic elements of the original and create a truly twisted take on the original.
Formats for the release are as follows:
CD 1 - (Fugitive Motel-Switching Off Acoustic Version) -Ribcage (Andy Cato Mix)
CD 2 - Fugitive Motel (RJD2 Mix)-Love Blown Down -Ribcage (Kinobe Mix)
DVD - Fugitive Motel (Soup Collective Alt Video) -
