Steve Mason "Lost and Found (Hyetal Remix)"
In preparation for the forthcoming release (July 25 digital and August 2 physical) of Ghosts Outside—a collaborative effort between former Beta Band member turned solo artist Steve Mason and Dennis Bovell which reinterprets Mason's Boys Outside LP from last year—album cut "Lost and Found" has been handed to Bristol producer (and recent XLR8R featuree) Hyetal (pictured above) for a reworking. Giving the original tune a welcome jolt of energy, Hyetal uses Mason's introspective lyrics as a guide for his onslaught of harrowing synth work to follow. In step with what we've come to expect from the burgeoning producer, there is a dark, mysterious undercurrent to this remix which adds a thick element of suspense, especially when paired with the fact that a beat never fully kicks in, the track instead building pattern upon pattern before methodically breaking back down to its simplest elements.
