Sunset Graves shares his remix of ‘Tropics’ by Palms (Deftones, Isis), for free download on his soundcloud. The producer who released his ‘Form Your Ghost’ album last week has also put the whole album up for stream.
Sunset Graves, also known as Andy Fosberry, had this to say about the remix;
“Being a long time Deftones fan, I was aware that the Palms record was coming, but I didn’t hear a note of it until it was released. To my surprise, it wasn’t only my favourite record from last year, but has now become one of my favourite albums ever. I chose Tropics because there are other songs on the album that, unarguably, just can’t be fucked with.
The track took about two weeks to finish. But I wanted it to be right and ended up recording live instruments as well as applying more ‘in the box’ methods. I used the most rudimentary vocal extraction technique to grab two of Chino’s verses, sampled a 4 bar loop from the outro and some of the crackle from my copy of the album. This is all I used. The rest is all new music at the same tempo and key as the original.
When it was finally done, I nervously presented it to Aaron, who was stoked with the outcome and sent it out the rest of the band. …couldn’t ask for more really.”
Sunset Graves second full-length album ‘Form Your Ghost’ is out now via 3rd & debut records. ‘Form Your Ghost’ has been likened to God Is An Astronaut, Elevium and Boards of Canada. Andy recorded, mixed and mastered the album himself throughout the winter in his self-described “creepy as fuck” recording studio on the edge of the countryside.
