Devonwho "Strangebrew (DJAO Remix)"
- Words: Cam Curran
Devonwho, the astrally inclined California beatmaker, receives a fluttering remix from Seattle-based producer DJAO (pictured above) of his latest single for All City, "Strangebrew." Drifting synth tones and softly contoured chords billow back and forth across the track's intro, sounding something like a sea anemone swaying slowly within its tropical environs. The aural landscape is subsequently placed in the shadow of a massive bassline, which pulses rhythmically to fill each and every pockmark around the track's hollow percussion and robust melodies. A member of the Dropping Gems crew, DJAO has been featured on XLR8R previously, and after hearing this remix, we can only hope there's more on the way.
