Alphabets Heaven "Birthday (Kamikaze Space Programme Remix)"
Based in Canada, the King Deluxe imprint has spent the last few years serving as a dependable hotbed for an international roster of genre-blurring producers. The label has decided to start 2014 by offering a free compilation, Year Three, which counts contributions from Julien Mier, Aleph, Metome, and others to its tracklist, alongside this rework of Alphabets Heaven from West Norwood Cassette Library affiliate Kamikaze Space Program. Living up to his namesake, the UK producer makes his remix all about, well, space. Despite its assemblage of galactic FX and textures, Kamikaze Space Program's production is left wide open—allowing a few crisp rhythms and a dusty kick to remain in the foreground while trickling melodies, gliding pads, and tuned percussion sneak in from the sides. The rest of King Deluxe's Year Three comp can be freely downloaded here.
