Foals - Collected Reworks (Coloured 3LP Vinyl)
From their early days hosting parties in Oxford through to the huge success of their two-part Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost album, Foals have consistently explored their interest in dance and electronica. Now the band chart the most essential remixes from their career so far as they share the new remix package Collected Reworks Vol 1.
The tracks featured on Collected Reworks, are a compilation from an eclectic range of artists who have uncovered new angles to Foals’ discography. It includes one of their earliest remixes, from Ewan Pearson who blends Balearic bliss into Olympic Airways, as well as Solumun’s huge version of Late Night, which has been viewed over 50 million times at YouTube. Another standout moment is Hot Chip’s inventive interpretation of My Number.
Another standout is Hot Since 82’s brand new remix of Into The Surf. The tech house producer / DJ behind Buggin’ and Restless subverts the track from its original desolate beauty into something fresh and invigorating. The relentless driving beat maximises its energy throughout its eight minute duration, while its progressive leanings are given some unexpected throwback flavour with ‘80s style sax.
