Tireme "Virgin Island (Groundislava Remix)"
Tireme is an anonymous "concept duo" who crafts tunes around the narrative that the pair are from another world, and its forthcoming release, the Virgin Island EP, is said to follow the duo's journey from a crumbling planet to a promising new land. L.A. beatsmith Groundislava (a.k.a. Jasper Patterson) has contributed a remix of the project's lead single, which features the addition of breakneck, drum & bass-inspired percussion to an otherwise peaceful and sun-drenched track. The contrast between the tension of Patterson's fast-paced additions and the uplifting qualities of the original result in an unorthodox but compelling composition. The Virgin Island EP is currently available via Feel So Real's Bandcamp.
