Over the summer, Swedish trio Ember Island gave us a serenely meditative cover of Radiohead standard Creep, imbuing the song’s “float like a feather” lyric an immeasurably palpable quality. Boulder based production pro Thoreau gives that beautiful version of Creep a deeply introspective remix, installing a brilliant new twist on future bass in the process. Though Thoreau’s Creep is built on a punchy bass line and infused with staccato beats, this calculated meander, a dramatically contemplative edit, takes us on a somber ride that leaves us waxing philosophical. As we muse over the esoteric, it dawns on us. Perhaps this is why Thoreau gave himself the name that he has. He enlightens us with his transcendental music, overwhelming us with dark beauty while driving deep into our psyche. Download the remix from Toneden.
