“Crest” (Tricky Remix)

    When we first heard the breezy surf-pop offered up by the Antlers’ latest EP, it never entered our heads that it might meet up with one of the biggest names in trip-hop. But now that we think about it, “Crest” always had a swanky mid-90s vibe in its easy beat and sparse, pointed bass. Under the careful hand of ex-Massive Attack collaborator Tricky, the Undersea track dives deeper into a dark, pressurized new zone. Stripping away most of the ambient textures that populate the original tune, Tricky lets Peter Silberman’s vocals slink bare around that noir bassline while he whispers eerily in the background.
