Pink Priest "Tell Me Something Awesome Before I Go to Sleep (Balam Acab Remix)"

Recently featured Bubblin' artist Balam Acab (pictured above) is a little less than two months from dropping his debut EP, See Birds, on the brand-new, 20 Jazz Funk Greats-affiliated Tri Angle label. Before we start going ga-ga over the shadowy tunes to be heard on that release, we're going to get lost in the hypnotic textures of producer Alec Koone's remix of this Pink Priest track, "Tell Me Something Awesome Before I Go to Sleep." Slowly, Acab's remix grows in intensity—if you can call it that—with synth and vocal loops climbing up to the forefront, but quickly dissipating soon after. It's reminiscent of the trademark interludes scattered throughout Boards of Canada's albums, but presented instead as a fully realized song and not the middle-place between tracks.

The See Birds EP is out on 12" and digital formats August 16.
