Rips and Remixes: The XX – Sunset (Kim Ann Foxman Remix)

homepage_large.a1310296[1]A heavy kick and boosted vocals pump up the highlight single from last year’s Coexist by the xx. The redub of Sunset interpolates multiple synthesizer tracks among the simple melody. The atmosphere is small and dim, focusing on the natural reverberation of Romy and Oliver’s duet. The track remains progressive, yet many elements are dulled as others are added to the mix. Together, the remix comes together into something analogous to Jaime xx’s remixes. Check out the remix below (and if you’re interested, Jaime xx’s boiler room mix as well):
