Kid Astray "Taking You With Me (Alizzz Remix)"
- Words: James Eaton
In its original form, Kid Astray's (pictured above) "Taking You With Me," is an easygoing slice of pop, one indebted to the likes of M83 and similar outfits whose efforts lean towards the more glowing ends of the electronic spectrum. On his remix of the track, Barcelona producer Alizzz turns the song (taken from Kid Astray's recent EP of the same title for Cosmos) into a more hyperactive affair, squeezing a number of skittering drum patterns and neon-striped synths between the Olso outfit's expansive guitars and thickly layered vocals. With hardly a lull to speak of, Alizzz's remix moves through ideas at a head-spinning pace, providing an energetic rework to accompany Kid Astray's summery original.
