Randomer & Adverse "Alizé (Greymatter Remix)"
We all know the well-worn adage: Less is more. Here, that philosophy is put to good use by Brighton-based producer Greymatter on his remix of the forthcoming single from Randomer & Adverse, "Alizé." It's not that Greymatter is making minimalist bass music or any such thing, but when juxtaposed with Randomer & Adverse's bubbling originals and HomePark's own deep remix of the title track, it's easily the most pared down of the bunch. A lone tambourine and kick-drum rhythm make up the spine of "Alizé (Greymatter Remix)," on which the producer employs a chopped-up vocal loop, monotone organ stabs, a massive bass drop every so often, and a couple more percussion sounds. There are certainly more than, say, 10 sounds in this shuffling tune, but Greymatter gives each one of them enough room to breathe that you could probably pick out the noises individually at any given time, though you're likely to be too busy moving to the jam's thick groove to even bother giving that a try. You can check out the EP's other three tracks when Alizé drops on January 10 via Super.
