George Fitzgerald has worked his Scuba-sanctioned magic on a new track from Gang Colours.
FitzGerald has recently been earning his bread through releases on the Hotflush label, most notably last year’s Shackled EP. The London beatwreaker also helms the ManMakeMusic label, who have clocked up singles from Jack Dixon and Porto producer Trikk. His productions are situated on the house/dubstep faultline, the chill of the later mingling with the dynamism of the former. FitzGerald has now elected to remix the new single from groggy producer Gang Colours, available to stream for the first time below.
The original, taken from February’s The Keychain Collection, is a muted piano ballad, augmented with broken vocals and IDM fractals. FitzGerald’s take is much more red-blooded. Gang Colour’s croon is left fairly intact, but FitzGerald punches in supplementary layers of analogue synth and percussion. Before long, FitzGerald’s cooked up a shameless techno stomper.
‘To Repel Ghosts’ is due on June 4, courtesy of Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label.
