Letherette "After Dawn (Bibio Remix)"
UK duo Letherette has never had a problem injecting some funk in its productions, no matter how mangled the sources are. But on this remix of "After Dawn," a single from the pair's recent self-titled debut for Ninja Tune, Warp affiliate Bibio (pictured above) sweeps some of those slinky accoutrements aside, keeping his focus on propelling the beat. The UK producer hones in on what makes "After Dawn" work—a thick, West Coast-influenced groove and a syncopated bass riff that could seemingly loop forever. And for a guy whose productions sometimes get lost in the maze of their own details, Bibio's more straightforward version of "After Dawn" is doubly refreshing. (via FACT)
