3. Hideout (ThermalBear Remix)
Following his hugely successful debut LP ‘Traces’, highly praised by the likes of RA, Mixmag and DJ Mag, Simon Baker’s latest EP on Last Night On Earth, ‘Hideout’ see’s the British producer pressing those buttons again. Simon’s signature sound, ‘Hideout’ is swimming in gentle drum pads and irresistible melody, yet maintains a deep and chunky synth. The Native American esque flutes are simple yet add all the intrigue to this track.
The bouncing bass notes in ‘Beliefs’ are only the beginning to this meaty house number. Again this track experiments with indigenous sounds that give it an eery twist.
ThermalBear’s remix strips back the warmth from ‘Hideout’, plays heavier on the hi-hats and introduces clear rise and fall to produce a sterner version of the track.
