Elder Island "The Big Unknown (Ben La Desh Remix)"

Earlier this summer, Bristol trio Elder Island issued its self-titled debut EP (artwork above) via the Four Thieves label. A five-track effort, the record saw the group meld together electronics and live instrumentation for a sound that is somewhat reminiscent of Brooklyn trio Archie Pelago, but with an extra dose of pop and the added presence of vocals. Pulled from the EP is "The Big Unknown," a funk-touched track which has been given a rework by Ben La Desh. Stretching the tune to exactly seven minutes, the Dutch producer's remix infuses Elder Island's original with a late-night pulse which peaks through dense layers of murky pads and a series of cloudy melodies.
