Tora ‘Jaigantic’ (Galimatias Remix)
Intriguing Byron Bay outfit TORA and their track Jaigantic have been the latest to undergo the reworking of Danish producer GALIMATIAS, and the results could not be better! Blending electronic and acoustic elements in a graceful and elegant manner, GALIMATIAS has managed to pull of a remix unlike any I’ve heard in a very long time!
Pumping Jaigantic full of lush synths and fragmented chops, GALIMATIAS doesn’t so much replace the aesthetic of the track as he does compliments it, blowing it into a technicoloured version of itself. It’s charming and quaint, yet with it’s warped synths and drops it becomes alive.
Keeping the original vocals in tact and in the foreground, GALIMATIAS‘ work is all in the background working alongside TORA to make this remix a hit. Where the original fell under the “chillwave” category, this version is definitely a more lively and upbeat version.
GALIMATIAS has been busy making beautiful tunes with vocalist ALINA BARAZ ahead of the release of their collaborative EP Urban Flora with the already released tracks clocking up well over a million plays each. The tracks already released from this follow a similar style of the Jaigantic remix – intriguing and emotive, and show off GALIMATIAS‘ impressive production skills in all it’s glory.
TORA will be performing at the Byron Bay leg of FALLS FESTIVAL on New Year’s Eve, whilst GALIMATIAS continues to be somewhat elusive in the Northern Hemisphere.
