Remixed is a column that will highlight remixes we actually think are worthy of praise, be they old or new. Because most remixes are rubbish. // Words: Saam Das
Duologue already have past form on producing not-diabolically-crap remixes, with their excellent recent Givers remix. Their newest slice of brilliance twists the latest single from The Drums into a wide-eyed, hot electronic mess. We're premièring the track and you can download it for free below. Prepare to be razzle-dazzled.
Admittedly, the Duologue remix of 'How It Ended' begins in a more than slightly dubious fashion. Remember the days of MySpace and when a track used to automatically start playing....invariably over the top of a track you were already listening to. Well, it's a bit like that.
When it grows out of its conflicted beginnings, the track grows into something increasingly curious. Parts of the track travel close to the chop-pop of Clock Opera while others find themselves in the experimental electronica of an Animal Collective. The result is unexpectedly hypnotic and utterly compelling.
