Saroos "Yukoma (Opiate Remix)"
- Words: Taylor Fife
We gave the original version of this tune by German trio Saroos (composed of members of Lali Puna and The Notwist) a "First Listen" a while back, and posted a more dance-oriented refix by producer/remixer Populous earlier this year. Now, we're back with a third permutation of the slow and serene track, this time with a remix that's sparser and even more laid back than the original. This glitchy edit comes courtesy of veteran electronic musician and composer Opiate (a.k.a Thomas Knak, pictured above), who strips away the lush, indie-rock feel of the original and replaces it with a dreamy and textured tone.
