Eaux "New Peaks (Tuff Sherm Remix)"
- Words: DeForrest Brown
Under his Tuff Sherm alias, Australian producer Dro Carey has remixed "New Peaks," the latest single from electronic pop outfit Eaux (pictured above). Once a strain of chilled-out and romantic new wave, Eaux's new song is completely trampled by Tuff Sherm, leaving only scraps of the original production in his wake. Placing the stifled grind of a house beat in its center, the remix slowly winds on its synth-laden path, taking exasperated breaths along the way. Eventually, the beat starts swinging around, knocking about the stereo field until Tuff Sherm's track gives way to Eaux vocalist Ahern's crystalline falsetto and an especially propulsive climax. Furthermore, Eaux is about to hit the road in the UK and Europe, the dates of which can be found after the jump.
