C.A.R – Idle Eyes Remixes
Label: Les Disques De La MortRelease: Out Now
Chloè Raunet‘s latest project, C.A.R. see’s the singer go solo. The first single off her album ‘Idle Eyes’ gives evidence that Raunet will defintely be putting a stamp on ‘future cosmic pop’ . ‘Idle Eyes’ is the latest single Manfreda and Benedikt Frey take on remix duties for ‘Idle Eyes’ . With the remixes seeing release via Les Disques De La Morte we approached this package with a fair amount of anticipation.
Manfreda begins with a remix of ‘Angelina’ on the A-Side. It’s amazing what the use of vocals, or as seen here, the absence of vocals can do. The Angelina Instrumental has an air of aggression, tension building snares lead the way with subtle off beats. The main focus being on the sub level bass leading to the synth-y breakdown before throwing you back in the deep end. Having listened to the vocal mix, it can be sure that the instrumental is the way to go.
Benedikt Frey decides to keep the soul of the original and deliver his twist. A psychedelic, retro journey is the out come. A great remix here with some careful creeping acid lines, one for the mind body and soul.
