Alpines "Cocoon (xxxy Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
DJ/producer xxxy has been insanely busy lately. He's collaborated with Bristol bass head Baobinga, dropped a two-track 12" on the growing Orca label, busted out DJ sets all over the place, and kept up with his remix work all the while. The latest of his solid reworks to make the rounds is this buoyant soundsystem jam, "Cocoon (xxxy Remix)." Originally by UK pop duo Alpines (pictured above), "Cocoon" starts out sporting a beat and melody that wouldn't be entirely out of place in xxxy's own work, which the producer seems to confirm as he bases much of his shimmering version around those moving sounds.
