Casiokids "En Vill Hest (Prins Thomas Remix)"
As his productions often do, Prins Thomas' remix of "En Vill Hest" by Norwegian indie-pop quintet Casiokids takes its sweet, sweet time to really get cooking. After spending nearly half of the song's run time layering percussion upon bass licks upon low-register chants upon guitar strums upon synth flourishes upon more drum sounds, a smooth falsetto vocal is introduced to the mix, and moves the track from slow-burning Balearic disco to upbeat beachfront pop. In the hands of someone other than Prins Thomas, a nine-minute exploration of hypnotic live instrument grooves could be a drab listen, but somehow Thomas manages to make his remix coast by without us having to glance at our watch.
