Beacon "Bring You Back (Kuhrye-oo Remix)"
Later this month, Brooklyn duo Beacon (pictured above) will release its debut album, The Ways We Seperate, a record for which the original "Bring You Back" serves as its lead track. With the LP's official release a few weeks away via Ghostly, Beacon has shared a rework of the tune by Canadian producer and UNO label affiliate Kuhrye-oo, who injects the icy electronic-pop song with drum & bass-style breaks and infrequent glimpses of crashing, metallic soundscapes. Still, Kuhrye-oo keeps the withheld mood of the original production mostly intact, electing to leave plenty of open spaces for a remix that is sparse but certainly never lacking substance.
