Videos » 9Bach - Asteri Mou (Gruff Rhys Loops & Drones Remix)

Buy the Tinc EP on iTunes → The Tinc EP features remixes of four tracks from 9Bach’s second album Tincian. These remixes were carried out by: Gravenhurst, who has turned Lliwiau into a “narcotised fug of heart-palpitation bass and wraith-like vocals” (The Quietus); Carcharorion, who have warped 9Bach’s interpretation of traditional folk song Pa Le?, making it now sound as if celestial robots have joined Lisa Jen’s extraordinary vocals; Sir Doufus Styles (Cate Le Bon, Super Furry Animals, The Flaming Lips) mix of Wedi Torri, creating a subtle reworking, emphasizing the beauty of the original, and, finally, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals). The Gruff Rhys remix is the first that he has undertaken in his own right, turning Asteri Mou, into a haunting and hypnotic song cycle, building toward a pounding climatic finish. Rhys said of his remix: “I love this song by 9 Bach - I worked with engineer Simon Jones in trying to exaggerate the natural rounds of the vocal parts. The plan was to create an R&B mantra that would build into a droning racket - that would transport us into another dimension, or at least out of Cardiff.”
