Solo artist Haux has proven himself an exquisite sonic magician with his dream folk and ambient alt electronica. One of my all time favorite Haux tracks has to be Caves, a song which has already received some splendorous remixing treatments since the original surfaced over a year ago. The latest such treat comes by way of Miami duo SMLE, who takes advantage of the original’s spacious grandeur and melancholic twinge to create a breathtaking tapestry of sound and vibes. The ethereally quivering chill trap and dizzy skittering drumwork found on SMLE’s remix are compressed and dense, but we’re given more than enough time to breath between dramatic build ups and spiraling drops, too. Any remix of Haux can be expected to be beautiful, but SMLE goes above and beyond on this alternately soothing and frenetic remix. The track is part of an official remix package for Caves, out now on Ultra Records. Haux will be touring stateside this April with a stop in San Francisco at the Brick & Mortar Music Hall. You can also stream SMLE’s remix of Caves off of Soundcloud below.
