Keaton Henson – ‘Elevator Song’ (Ulrich Schnauss Remix)

On a totally different note, Ulrich Schnauss has recently posted a beautiful remix of Keaton Henson‘s ‘Elevator Song’. It’s up for free download thanks to the folks at XLR8R.The minimal electronic piece is built on slow moving sounds that build and fade, fantastic work! You’ll find the original version on Henson’s ‘Romantic Works‘ LP. Side point, I went to a hippy cinema on the weekend (think lentils and bean bags) and before the movie they were playing Carbon Based Lifeforms ‘Arecibo‘ from the Twentythree album. I’m not much of an ambient connoisseur but that album is perfect to zone out to (listen).

French producer Valdorea has created a brilliant remix of An Occasion For Balloons ‘You’ll Get By’ for the newly released compilation album ‘Summer 2014‘ (available for free download thanks to Beko). If you’re a fan of dreamy beats with a shoegaze sheen then this should toss your salad! The original track was released late last year on ‘All As It Is‘, the work of North Carolina’s Nate Wagner. As for Valdorea (real name is Loïc), some of you may have heard her previous work under the pseudonym Valdor, she’s got a talent for crafting angelic sounds.

Introducing Toronto’s Reflect Box, a husband and wife electronic duo (Mike and Laura Abercrombie). Some of you would have heard Mike’s work before as part of the duo North Atlantic Drift. However Laura’s vocal work steals the show on the ambient track ‘You Are’. It’s like classic Massive Attack on Valium! Grab it on the new digital 7inch here. Reflect Box are currently at work on their debut EP.
