Again, and unsurprisingly, we find ourselves reaping rewards from the ever-tinkering disposition of Nicolaas van Reenen. Here, he’s tackled the slow-burning ‘Low‘ from up-and-coming London electro-pop duo, Youth, and turned it into a searing, club-ready tune.
The original track with its lush atmosphere and harmonies was already fertile ground to build upon, yet the Fever Trails remix has cut right to the essence of it.
The vocals are intermittently pitch-shifted to their farthest extent, before they’re allowed to again emerge from the building static. The track fidgets and buzzes forward tantalisingly before it hooks fully into the addicting, head scrambling beat. It’s the type of sound and moment you can easily lose yourself in, standing in the middle of a packed dance floor. “I could fix your heart,” often rings out of the rolling beats, and it’s hard to say if that’s true of this track, but it could certainly make it all better – for at least a little while.
