Cloud Boat "Amber Road (The Haxan Cloak Remix)"

Earlier this year, London duo Coud Boat released its expansive debut LP, Book of Hours, via R&S sub-label Apollo. Now, "Amber Road" has been plucked from that album's tracklist and handed over to sonic sorcerer The Haxan Cloak (pictured above), who delivers a dark and brooding rework (we wouldn't expect anything less). Almost doubling the length of "Amber Road" on his remix, the London sound designer/producer infuses the already gloomy original tune with an added edge, singeing the revolving drones and menacing pads with a fuzzy distortion before focusing on the churning rhythms of the percussive layers assembled below.
