Emiliana Torrini "Speed of Dark (Andrew Weatherall Remix)"

Seminal producer Andrew Weatherall has just served up his hypnotizing remix of a cut from Icelandic singer/songwriter Emiliana Torrini's upcoming Tookah LP for Rough Trade. Though he relies on a patient tempo, Weatherall's version of "Speed of Dark" could make for decent dancefloor fare, as he stretches it to a 10-minute production packed full of rolling synths, classic drum-machine sounds, and spacey FX that—despite their genre-crossing nature—complement Torrini's distinctive voice surprisingly well. Also worth mentioning is the attention Weatherall pays to the glut of reverb-soaked drones, sounds which give some added depth to his track's looping framework.
