gloves

Wednesday, 10 September 2008


i remember hearing about a young fellow called GLOVES on the blogs ages ago..
he had a pretty rad 80's movie posterish press shot which impressed me, and his beats really stood out in a crowd of electro-y/fidget-y repetitiveness..

this remix of 'sweaty wet/dirty damp' by the incredibly over-rated gameboy/gamegirl is a recent GLOVES affair which i rather enjoyed..
he really brought sanity and production values to the song- which i thought was a tacky, underproduced spew fest prior..

Gameboy/Gamegirl - Sweaty Wet/Dirty Damp (GLOVES Remix)

GLOVE'S two new remixes which have recently come our way show an element of maturity and depth that has grown into his production.. his fresh new remix of 'changes' by van she is an incredibly lush track filled with soft alan braxe style synths and a warm bass..
his *also* fresh new remix of Listen to This Collision by The Death Set is more in keeping with his usual style but many of the hardcore electro-y elements have been toned down to somehow create a more frantic and claustrophobic feel..

Van She - Changes (GLOVES Remix)

The Death Set - Listen To This Collision (GLOVES Remix)

very clever is this lad
in his other guise he is known as Yama Indra from Damn Arms.. both he and his band have recently been signed so i could imagine that their lives are pretty much awesome right about now..
