James K "Drunktrack (Florian Kupfer Remix)"
Back in November, New York-based sound collagist and singer James K self-released her four-track Rum EP, and now, a new remix of EP cut "Drunktrack" has come in from L.I.E.S. affiliate Florian Kupfer. Extending the vocal-led song into an eight-plus-minute voyage through airy house sounds, Kupfer proves unafraid to take his time with the rework, as he slowly builds a glowing procession of hypnotic looping patterns of keys and vocals around slightly overdriven drums. It all makes for a meditative rework that still packs a good deal of punch despite operating below 100 bpm.
