Cover versions can be notoriously tricky to get right. Getting the perfect balance between paying tribute to the original and giving it your own twist is notoriously hard. Happily, Joakim has more than managed it with this superb cover of Neil Young's atmospheric 1974 song "On The Beach". While Joakim's version is tactile, dreamy, electronic and, dare we say it, Balearic (check the lilting pedal steel and snaking sax lines), the French producer has managed to retain the melancholy and heartaching pain of Young's original. The remixes are uniformly impressive, too, with Balearic specialists CFCF delivering a typically baggy and sun-soaked take and Principles of Geomotry taking the track deep into glitchy experimental territory.
