“Candil De La Calle” (Fennesz Remix)

    I hope you’re in the mood for some noisy-as-hell and straight-up killer shoegaze, because that’s exactly what Fennesz has created here with his remix of Apparat’s “Candil De La Calle.” The original has some dreamy elements to it, mainly in the vocals and the touches of noise that swell in the background. But when Fennesz adds his trademark swashes of distortion and feedback, the song turns into something that reminds me of the now-defunct Depreciation Guild minus the chiptune elements. In other words: this is really, really well executed. Stream the remix below. It drops March 15 via Mute UK. [Self-Titled]
