Already added to last week’s Friday Five, this remix by InterestingSomethings is a track that needs to be mentioned once more to the masses. Originally produced with variations of chilled-out psychadelia, this version of “You and I” swallows that concept whole and goes tribal.
At around the 20 second mark, the song transforms you from your hazy state of nostalgic grandeur into a spectacle of beat-driven, polyethnic nastiness. It’s almost as if the chillstep gods were concocting an idiosyncratic pathway into another musical dimension, albeit in a subtler form. The vastness of space and the bizarre complexities within this song gives a vital display of musical exploration, juxtaposing two extremely different genres and making it work in one cohesive direction.
It’s a weird, crazy world out there when it comes to music, and this track makes it that much weirder. Enjoy.
