Featured Song: Kilter – Fool For You (Tonton Remix).
The art of the remix is one of those balancing acts in electronic music. It’s a sophisticated form of artistry, and given all of its nuances, it demands a level of creativity which matches that of the original composition, and properly tips a hat to it. Dutch producer Tonton is a real maestro in this field – his takes on Mura Masa’s “Lotus Eater,” and San Holo’s “Light” are just some examples of the European artist’s creative remixing work.
With this official remix for the Aussie musician Kilter and his rampant single “Fool For You,” Tonton’s abilty with non-electronic instrumentation is once again in its finest form.
Flute, bouncy drums, and strings help to make up a bright mix of sounds on this one, all guided along by a warm but gritty bassline which helps to create an enchanting atmosphere. Micah Jey’s vocals, too, are expressive and standout, helping to create a really memorable flip of the original track.
