To hype the release of his full-length Into the Hillside (out June 16), Cassettes Won’t Listen (born Jason Drake) has joined up with Wired.com’s Underwire to release a free remix EP called â€“ this one was too easy â€“ (F)remix. The collection includes six CWL remixes for a variety of artists: The Dears, The Death Set, Christine, The Faunts, Bisc1 and, most appealing to me, Mr. Lif, who a couple months ago released a new full-length I Heard it Today.
I’m a huge fan of CWL’s remix of El-P’s Flyentology (better than the original, I say), so no surprise here that I dig what he’s done with Mr. Lif’s The Sun, slowing the sample from 45 to 33 1/3 RPM and wrapping Lif’s voice in an airy atmosphere instead of the low-end aggression of the original.
