Stream: James Vincent McMorrow – Pink Salt Lake (Kobina Remix)
After the release of True Care, James Vincent McMorrow released the stems for two album tracks ‘Pink Salt Lake’ and ‘Holding On’, opening up the floor for remixers to explore and interpret the album in new ways. In an Instagram post he said: “Everything about True Care has been different. I want that reality to extend to the remixes.”
Dublin-native Amsterdam-based producer Sean Arthur AKA Kobina has stepped up to the plate with a languid remix of ‘Pink Salt Lake’, taking the hushed, velvety ambience of the original and decorating it with light, pulsing beats, down-pitched vocals and giving the gospel choir backdrop a welcome prominence as it swells to a glitching peak. Irresistible.
The remix comes as a pleasing stopgap for Kobina, who will be releasing his third EP later in the year following 2016’s marvellous, glistening electronica EP Sentinel Island released via Fido Sound.
