By now, my guess is that you’ve KO KO’s “Float” played a few times. We’ve covered the original, shared a remix by Sound Remedy, and in general touted the undeniable catchiness of the LA-based band’s whistling intro. So, if you haven’t heard it, you obviously don’t check our website enough ;-)
Today, we’ve got an exclusive premier of a remix by Polaris at Noon’s Jason Suwito, who incidentally plays drums for KO KO during live sets.
My understanding is that unlike Sound Remedy’s remix, the actual stems were used for this remix (that is, PAN received the original recording and was able to strip out the instruments). The result is a full-bodied electronic interpretation that still retains much of the original’s catchiness.
