DJ Mehdi – ‘Pocket Piano (Joakim Remix)’

I always really enjoy So Me’s cover art for Ed Banger

Last time I briefly mentioned how remixes range on a spectrum of “minor tweaks” to “full reconstruction”. Today’s track is firmly on the “minor tweaks” end, but it’s a fine example of how the lightest of touches can create a subtly different new track. Joakim takes DJ Mehdi’s track, lengthens it, and spends ten minutes making variations on a simple piano riff.

The highlight for me is at about the halfway point where the music goes a little glitchy, and again towards the end where the the giltichy-ness returns with a more sinister chord structure.
