Chet Faker ‘Talk Is Cheap’ (Kaytranada Remix)
The vocal component of the remix is slowed down dramatically and used as another instrument alongside some hypnotising high pitched synth that emanates a flute like sound and will remind the listener of a coiled python dancing its way out of a cane basket. Frightening yet seductive at the same time.
The brittle shards of bass careen throughout this remix, cooing out and reeling in at the same time. Subtle hints of deep house are scattered in between the soulful vocals from Chet Faker, while Kaytranada keeps the tempo down low, creating a menacing atmosphere.
This remix of ‘Talk Is Cheap’ is utterly surprising and what makes it even more unique is the presence of the enticing drum solo at the very end of the track. This mix may not be exactly what you were expecting, but it will definitely hold you until the very last second, much like a snake charmer would.
