With the release of Disclosure’s debut album, Settle, less than a week away, Toro y Moi decided to touch people’s excitement buttons by slipping a sneaky remix onto the internet via his SoundCloud account. Eliza Doolittle’s vocals over Disclosure’s production has already provided us with a perfect garage-pop jam, but Toro y Moi thought that ‘You & Me’ needed to simmer for a little longer before serving.
Taking cues from Disclosure’s own ‘Latch’, Toro y Moi sends hats and snares rolling along in triplet patterns behind the vocals. Everything is a little more subdued than the original track. After meandering on for a while though, things gets interesting when a collage of chopped vocals take centre stage. If that isn’t enough for you, there’s a very unexpected outro – perhaps a different approach to the remix that wasn’t good enough to take control, but too good to waste completely. Either way it’s worth a listen. A track for the ears, not the feet.
Keep an eye on Stoney Roads for our track-by-track review of the album, coming sooner than you think.
