Exray's "Ancient Thing (Devonwho Remix)"
- Words: James Eaton
San Francisco outfit Exray's is just about two months from the release of its second full-length, Trust a Robot, and has enlisted West Coast beatmaker Devonwho for a pleasantly disjointed remix of one of its cuts. The Bay Area-via-Portland producer stripped the original song of pretty much everything but its rounded bass and synth tones, which he expertly applies to a stuttering rhythm and some sporadic vocal samples on this herky-jerky version of Exray's "Ancient Thing."
