Cassius Select "Jamo (Kane Ikin Remix)"

Sydney's Lavurn Lee (pictured above) recently inaugurated his new moniker, Cassius Select, with an EP for fledgling Australian outpost Hunter Gatherer. While Lee has started to build a name for himself based on the abstract R&B he produces under the Guerre alias, One finds him exploring more house-slanted momentums. For instance: EP opener "Jamo" threads watery keys and a muffled stomp through layers of ambient noise. Those shifting breaths of sound are amplified on Kane Ikin's rework of the tune; he creates a fog of highly distorted vocal samples and pulsing breaths of white noise. Ikin's version wasn't released as a part of Cassius Select's EP, but he is currently working on future productions for fellow Australian label This Thing.
