Ratatat "Neckbrace (Hyetal Remix)"

The fella behind our most recent podcast, Bristol producer Hyetal, also took the helm for this skittering remix of Ratatat's "Neckbrace." That duo's trademark sound arsenal—scraping grooves, layers of live instrumentation, and reversed synth/guitar swells—is re-fixed to fit the UK tunesmith's club-ready format, sounding like something more along the lines of Giorgio Moroder trying his hand at bass music. Surprisingly, it all meshes well, even when Hyetal isn't pushing his shuffling dance beats in the mix, and during lulls in the hyperactivity, Ratatat's melodic soundscapes are appropriated for touching vibes unavailable on the band's own records.
