Autre Ne Veut’s Remix of Cid Rim’s ‘Extend Ranges’ Takes R&B to Church
Also including reworks from Mike Slott and Joseph Marinetti, Cid Rim's 'Mute City Remixes' EP is out this week on LuckyMe
Cid Rim’s Mute City EP, released on LuckyMe last month, doesn’t sound like the work of a producer who’s only been putting out records for a few years. Slathered in color and as vividly textured as a nettle’s underside, it’s mature without being stodgy, extending LuckyMe’s super-saturated beat-music aesthetic in multiple directions at once: Electro-funk, 8-bit balladry, progressive rock. The way the Austrian producer doles out tricky rhythms with effortless finesse, it makes sense that he was trained as a free-jazz drummer.
Now, Mike Slott, Joseph Marinetti, and Autre Ne Veut all try their hand at remixing tracks from the EP. Autre Ne Veut takes the beatless, rose-tinted instrumental “Extend Ranges” and flips it into an R&B dirge with ecclesiastical overtones — complete with Fairlight choirs — that’s halfway between Forest Swords and Arvo Pärt. Listen to the remix in full below.
