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.
