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.

I used to associate the name Thoreau with the famed philosopher, but nowadays my mind turns towards the producer out of Colorado who’s proven to be a euphoria inducing remix virtuoso with his tracks. He follows up on last week’s sublime remix of Trace’s Low with a mellifluously exhilarating interpretation of Krewella, Pegboard Nerds, and NGHTMRE mega collaboration Superstar. The vivacious oscillating, whimsical trilling undertaking takes me from my desk to the cosmos, building resolutely to a magnificent, guitar laden future bass climax. For a moment, I can’t tell if I’m the superstar or Thoreau, but the answer is clear once the remix fades away and I’m able to think clearly, without the adrenaline rush from the massive edit coursing through my veins. The hero here is obviously not me. Thoreau’s soaring remix is a free download, here.

There’s a fascinating new producer on my radar out of Boulder, Colorado who goes by the name Thoreau, and though I know little about the newcomer, I do know that I can’t shake off the tingling bliss that permeates me as I listen to the producer’s new remix. Thoreau gives TRACE’s bittersweet spiraling, slow simmering serenade, Low, a beautiful future bass remix. While TRACE’s soft, lulling voice is now surrounded by rich shimmering synths and exuberant surging bass, the original’s emotive depth is very much preserved. Thoreau has crafted a gorgeous and skillful edit, an interpretation more than worthy of the amazing original. Whoever this Thoreau is, I’m expecting more scintillating music to come. Thorea’s remix of TRACE’s Low is a free download, here.
