Clearly a band switched on to interesting electronic producers, Cubenx have put together this single release to get their washed-out indie pop refigured by a diverse pair of remixers. Downliners Sekt take the New Order meets My Bloody Valentine of the original track and pitches it down. Bright and breezy synths get replaced with languid string samples, reverbed percussion and a slow-release beat akin to the Mount Kimbie school of half step. T. Williams does the complete opposite, instantly pumping elements of the original through an uptempo house cut. It's sleekly crafted 4/4 for that perfect blissed out moment in a peak time set.
Mexican producer Cubenx echoes pioneering countryman Murcof in creating dazzling electronica and affecting beats on this latest album, On Your Own Again. The Lone-esque tech-jumble of "Adrift At Sea", the icy and minimal "Lovebirds" and the deep, beatless Animal Collective-recalling "Mist Over The Lake" all stand out, but there's truly unique production and wide-eyed arrangements at every turn on this impressive release.
