Ambalance "Are You Around (Grenier Remix)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Burgeoning Toronto-based pair Ambalance has passed along this remix of the title cut from its new EP, Are You Around, which is out today. Smartly placed in the hands of West Coast low-end wrangler Grenier, the already heavy and icy production is taken into more astral territory on this particular rework. Where the original is a more driving affair, Grenier uses his remix to open the track up to more atmosphere, carving spaces within the slow-moving synth patterns to add massive kicks and touches of off-kilter percussion. Ambalance's Are You Around EP (artwork above) is a self-released effort available now through the outfit's Bandcamp.
