Back in February we commended the production work of Soosh and his Error Broadcast backed Colour is Breathe album at length, offering him the opportunity to discuss his processes. Later in the same month we also laid some praise on a blossoming Northern Irish talent, The Cyclist, who was readying an album on Matthewdavid’s Leaving Records imprint. Well… today we get the chance to tie off a couple of knots by hosting and posting The Cyclist’s reworking of Soosh’s ‘The Way You’ – a track that’s taken from the recent released remix album of Colour Is Breath (which also features remixes from artists like Slugabed, Zack Christ, devonwho, Dam Mantle, Synkro and new Friends of Friends signing, Evenings.
The elements that were once so subtly striking about Soosh’s original work seem to get choked in The Cyclist’s reworking as he feeds the source material through his own primitive set up. Managing to retain some of the melodic panache present in the vocal he adds his own formula of blown out bass and a taught focus pulling beat – the one thing (if anything) that might have been missing from Soosh’s album material.
