Partpanda "Way Back When (Kratos Himself Remix)"
- Words: Leo Maymind
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.
