Tim Green "Helpless Sun (Ryan Crosson Remix)"
Last week saw dependable London producer Tim Green release his Helpless Sun EP. Marking Green's first release for Canadian outpost My Favorite Robots, the four-track effort saw the UK artist deliver two originals along with a pair of remixes from Detroit resident Ryan Crosson. Taking on the EP's title track, Crosson reshapes "Helpless Sun" into a more rolling dancefloor effort. Built around a solid rhythmic core, Crosson's production focuses on thick bass tones and an ever-so-slightly swung shuffle, both of which keep the momentum steady as the remixer drapes a bevy of refracted guitar swells and vocal samples atop its shuffling pulse.
