Damn! If this remix of Zero 7's "Ghost sYMBOL" by UK DJ/producer Julio Bashmore (pictured above) is anything, it is goddamn dirty. And not like "don't bring 'em 'round your grandma" dirty, but rather, "soaked in crunchy bass and ass-moving rhythms" dirty. Nearly every sound Bashmore utilizes in his track crackles with the fuzz of distortion, and yet somehow manages to remain utterly pristine in its sound quality. Truthfully, this shuffling banger of a tune couldn't be further from the vibe of the original track, but it's a welcome addition to Zero 7's forthcoming Best Of release, Record, alongside other remixes from Fred Falke, Carl Craig, Motor City Drum Ensemble, and more.
(Editor's Note: Unbeknownst to us, the initial version we received for this download was a corrupted file. We now have the correct version of Bashmore's remix, which finds the talented producer flexing his usual bass-heavy production style. It's certainly not distorted, but will undoubtedly still get you down and dirty with its thick, rhythmic slap.)
