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
You're probably wondering why I'm reviving a track that's over four years old. It's been there, done that, and probably got to #1 on The Hype Machine's Most Popular chart. Because I can, I guess. The Mummers' version of 'Sleepyhead' is full of joyous majesty - something I need right now in my life. Maybe you'll welcome it into yours too. Download the track below.
The Mummers haven't really done much for a couple of years now but they'll be back later this year with a new album. Whether the subsequent tracks can match the brilliance of this hypnotic, brass-led take on 'Sleepyhead' remains to be seen. If they even come close, The Mummers will have done a top job.
