Cass, Jay Tripwire and Terry Francis deliver remixes of ARCAVES’ alternative pop track ‘Familiar Stranger’ on LSH Records this November.
Released earlier this year, ‘Familiar Stranger’ makes way for the UK band’s album that’s set to drop in 2018. Having heard the single, multifaceted producer and in-demand remixer Jay Tripwire reimagined it, which in turn lead to a remix package set to drop on LSH Records this November. Joining him, Cass’ globetrotting career has seen releases on Definition Audio, Oosh and Salacious Records, whilst Terry Francis has enjoyed an illustrious career spanning three decades, notably as one of the driving forces behind seminal London imprint Wiggle Records, not to mention his longstanding Fabric residency.
Cass opens with warm breaks and rolling arpeggios alongside undulating synthesisers to make a euphoric instrumental for reverb soaked hints of the enchanting vocals from the original. Jay Tripwire provides hard hitting drum work, spaced out pads and acid drenched melodies for his high energy take on ‘Familiar Stranger’ before Terry Francis closes with a deep, grooving low end, intriguing vocal manipulation and echoing percussion.
