Premier: It's Operational (CHIDA Remix) - This Soft Machine

Hot on the heels of its recent release, Eskimo Recordings are to release a new single taken from their Yellow Collection compilation later this week. Returning to Eskimo after his double-sided release last year, On & On / This Place Was Meant For Me, It's Operational is the latest track from This Soft Machine.

This Soft Machine is the moniker for musician Tim Sullivan and, in keeping with the general atmosphere of The Yellow Collection, It's Operational is a deep psych Balearic number. This remix is one of two that feature on the single, out on Friday. Sullivan met CHIDA after moving to Tokyo in 2009, describing him as "a guy with a huge smile and a great music knowledge to match". CHIDA's mix ups the pace and toughens the feel of the original to create a deep piece of electronic drama, the final minutes of the track building to an unstoppable crescendo.

It's Operational is released on Friday. Pre-order the release which includes the original, the CHIDA remix and a third version by Berlin-based DJ and producer Avalon Emerson here.
