One of the highlights from Empire of the Sun's dreamy debut, 'We Are The People' in its original form has lovely Fleetwood Mac-esque guitars and more those falsetto vocals. Kotchy's remix gives the track a stuttering percussive backing and as the rain pours down outside BlackPlastic's window this track suddenly feels appropriate - less like the summery days of 'Walking On a Dream' and much more like an overcast, melancholic lazy day - and it's rather nice. Best of all is the break with a rumbling bassline that strips back to the vocal before reintroducing the beat.
Kotchy, with his funky, almost subdued but effortlessly sexy productions and hushed vocals looks like one to watch. Head over to RCRD LBL to check some of his own work (BlackPlastic particularly recommends 'Sing What You Want'). His debut album 89 is out soon and EP I'd Have To Be High drops next week.
