Lucky Paul "Thought We Were Alone (Gang Colours Remix)"
The fledgling somethinksounds imprint is already on a bit of a roll this year, unveiling choice records from talented newcomers like London's Tommy Tempa and Berlin-based producer Lucky Paul. The latter of those two has yet to drop his EP, a seven-track affair called The Slow Ground that boasts four original tunes and three excellent remixes on the flip from label mate Eliphino, G$ vs. Gold (the brand-new collaborative outfit made up of Wolf + Lamb's Gadiz Mizrahi and Eli Gold of Soul Clap, who mark this remix as their world debut), and featured here, bubblin' UK tunesmith Gang Colours. For his version of "Thought We Were Alone," the young English artist pitches down its soulful vocal samples, tightens up its ramshackle rhythms, and smooths out its many fractured synth tones into a sleek wash of melody—making for another fine example of Gang Colours' exciting brand of bass music. The effervescent production seems to whiz past your ears in no time, which is perfect for diving into the rest of the jams that Lucky Paul's EP will offer when it's released on June 13.
