Check Out New Remixes from Tom Trago
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Next week, Anu Pillai (a.k.a. Freeform Five) will release his "Leviathan" single via Belgium's Eskimo label. Featuring the talents of Irish vocalist Róisín Murphy (of Moloko fame), the single will also come backed with a pair of remixes from Dutch house maven Tom Trago—both of which can now be heard exclusively on XLR8R ahead of their release.
Turning in both a straight-up remix along with a dub version of the tune, Trago spins Pillai's sweeping original into a more grounded affair, one anchored by a low-reaching bassline and unrelenting layers of airy percussion. Both of Trago's contributions to the "Leviathan" single can be streamed in full before the 12"—which features additional remixes from Freeform Five himself, Compuphonic, and Cage & Aviary—officially drops on February 10.
