Producer/DJ Erol Alkan has a nack for producing amongst other things, the finest remixes/reworks known to man, as his recent Tame Impala mix showed. Thankfully he is up to his old tricks again, this time dissecting Connan Mockasin‘s ‘Forever Dolphin Love’.
To refer to Mockasin as avant-garde would be an understatement. The original is a mammoth 10-minute off-kilter musical cocktail of spooky, unnerving and unusual psychedelia. Alkan has taken great care not to interfere with the essence of the track, instead softening the edges a little with a wonderfully chilled beats-y vibe from start to finish.
Connan Mockasin’s record is going to take some time to digest but for now you can stream rework/original below.
