Stream: Low - Youth

Loving both the original and Fever Trails remix of this new track from Youth. The original is sun-drenched, thick and honey-like - full of big pads and scattering drum patterns. Listen to it and download it via Soundcloud above.

The Fever Trails mix is a little more frenetic, rolling in pitched vocal treatments and some filtered bass. Fever Trails is South African electronic producer Nicolaas Van Reenan - you can check out his own (slightly bonkers) work on his Soundcloud.
