Kid Smpl "Escape Pod (Different Sleep Remix)"
Following the release of his debut full-length, Skylight, Seattle's Kid Smpl has put together two volumes of remixes, the second of which sees a release today and features reworks from Ceeda, Deebs, and many other budding production talents. Chicago's Different Sleep (pictured above) was enlisted to take a crack at Kid Smpl's "Escape Pod" for the collection, reinforcing the sprawling tune with a thick assemblage of chugging drums and sharp percussion—essentially building a new framework on top of which to place the lush synths and distant voices of Smpl's original. Both volumes of Skylight Remixes can be picked up for free via the Hush Hush label's Bandcamp.
