Ana Caravelle "Black Canyon (Shigeto's As I Inhale Mix)"
With help from precocious experimental labels like Leaving Records and Non Projects, the nether regions of the Golden State are likely to be a hotbed for inventive musicians and producers for years to come. It seems that every time we turn around, something unique is coming to us from these folks—the latest of which is harpist/vocalist Ana Caravelle. Her forthcoming debut, Basic Climb, which was recorded at Alpha Pup don Daddy Kev's studio and produced by boyfriend Asura, will be released September 28 on Non Projects, but not before a handful of remixes from some beat scene kids drop. Here, we've got a mix from Shigeto, who gives Caravelle's composition a crackling once over, and mixes in his own stuttered melodies and broken grooves while leaving much of the artist's voice and harp plucks intact. The remix is an ideal marriage of live musicianship and electronic wizardry that works well in keeping both approaches interesting and fresh.
