Snakehips "On and On (Alba Remix)"
The original version of "On and On" by London duo Snakehips hits several pleasure centers at once, forging a smooth vocal performance from sinewy singer George Maple into a tight, nuanced production that manages to incorporate retro and forward-thinking sounds simultaneously. On this remix of the track by Alba (pictured above), the Australian pair chooses to extract much of the bulk, instead focusing on a sleek, pared-down rhythmic take that recalls the fringes of UK garage. Not unlike its recently posted "Knokke" single, the pair knows when to keep things simple, as the slippery, reversed percussion and delicately processed vocals of "On and On (Alba Remix)" keep the listener thoroughly absorbed.
