Partpanda "Way Back When (Kratos Himself Remix)"

Dutch producer Kratos Himself has dipped his toes into making original tracks, but it seems his heart lies in remixing. His latest remix is for genre-bending Brighton trio Partpanda, who have no qualms with mixing sounds that run the gamut from elegaic folk to sinister hip-hop. Kratos Himself takes the band's "Way Back When" song and folds a slippery percussion loop into the mix, making the whole thing seem off-balance in a similar vein to the work of many LA beatmakers. As the song unravels, Kratos Himself layers in a wordless vocal that intertwines with a sparkling synthesizer fragment and a crescendo of ambient noise, only to abruptly pull back as the song comes to a quick halt.
