I have to give props to all parties involved in this track. If I were a Record Store Day exclusive, I’d wanna be like this track.
I would consider myself an acquaintance of the original, but hardly a passionate lover of “Sleeping Ute”. It’s a good track, but it never quite struck me in the way I feel like it should have. Getting my ears on Nicolas Jaar’s remix makes me appreciate it even more, however. Seriously though, after nearly eight minutes of Jaar loving you can’t realistically expect to sound any better than this remix. That’s personal opinion of course, but that’s why I’m here.
If the original was the force, this remix embodies the urges behind that desire. It’s very passionate and quite beautiful, in it’s own decadent way. This record is the sound you lose yourself in. Kudos to those of you who nabbed it on Record Store Day.
