I’m an enormous fan of Dan Snaith’s music under the project name Caribou, and I’m one of many people eternally grateful that Caribou finally dropped a new album late last year. Our Love, of course, was an incredible masterpiece. The second to last track on that album is a song named Back Home, a regal and triumphant number with an abundance of Caribou’s usual experimental electronic stylings, which utilize space and volume so well. If you’re going to remix that song, you’d better do it dang well. Well, kids, New Zealand production duo The Upbeats do exactly that. They turn Back Home into a splintering, mesmerizing, rolling drum and bass monster of an intoxicator. Well done, fellas. Now, I’m curious to hear more of Caribou’s tracks morphed into drum and bass jams. The Upbeats’ bootleg of Back Home is free to grab on bandcamp.
