High Places "Dry Lake (Urulu's Backroom Edit)"

LA-based producer Urulu (pictured above) delivered this edit of High Places' "Dry Lake," a bouncy cut taken from the duo's brand-new Original Colors LP. His version elongates the original tune by a couple of minutes in order to make room for extra bits of percussion, denser washes of reverb, and understated dance breaks. As Robert Barber of High Places puts it, "When we write, we have a tendency to make the songs jump from part to part, maybe a little too fast sometimes. It is nice to see how somebody else can feel it out and extend it, without worrying about 'the song.'" The man has a point, but we still very much hear a song in this mix. It's a good one, too.
