Two of the most blogged about acts on Indie Shuffle over the past couple of months combine on this track, with producer Fractures on remix duties for Snakadaktal's recent single "Hung On Tight."
The remix comes shortly after the release of Snakadaktal's debut album Sleep in the Water, which shot quickly up the Australian charts. It's also another step forward for Fractures, who had to put things on hold after fracturing his neck earlier this year (ridiculous coincidence, huh?). Naturally, that put his debut EP release plans on hold after debut single "Twisted" announced him as one to watch.
After enjoying his earlier remix of Owl Eyes' "Nightswim," we're again treated to another well-worked bit of production from Fractures. The combination of the two acts couldn't be more well-suited, with Fractures' typically icy beats meshing superbly with the ghostly vocals of Snakadaktal's Sean Heathcliff. The best thing about Fractures' work is that he does what few artists can: making a song his own while still staying true to the key aspects of the original.
I would have been very surprised if the combination of two of my favorite acts hadn't produced something special, but if anything, this remix has exceeded expectations.
