San Francisco’s graphic artist and ambient electronic producer Scott Hansen, aka Tycho, will drop “Awake Remixes”, a fine collection of remixes of tracks from last year’s fourth album “Awake”. Today, we’ve got our hands on a quality remix of “Plains” by Vampire Weekend’s bassist Baio. On his rework, Baio gives “Plains” a kind of soulfulness, adding a driving rhythm to the original’s beatless ambience and dropping in snatches of vocal for texture and warmth. Just perfect!
The “Awake Remixes”, which also features remixes by the likes of Com Truise, Christopher Willits, Bibio and Beacon, which had been previously released, will arrive digitally January 15th and on vinyl May 20th via Ghostly International. Pre-order it here.
