FREE DIGITAL EP // Gang Colours ‘In Your Gut Like A Knife’ Remixes

October 10, 2011

With his debut album set to be one of the early highlights of 2012, Gang Colours pops up with a neat remix package derived from his ‘In Your Gut Like A Knife’ EP, released back in June 2011 via Brownswood Recordings. Available digitally and completely free of charge… yes – FREE – via the Brownswood Bandcamp on 10th October 2011, the ‘In Your Gut Like A Knife’ remixes come from extended Brownswood family and fellow up-and-comers Pedestrian, Alex Patchwork, Frederic Robinson and DJ Dials.

With early outings via Goldie’s legendary Metalheadz imprint (remixing fellow Cambridge residents Commix) and Brownswood (check Bubblers Six) – plus an imminent EP on Push & Run – Pedestrian has quickly cemented himself as a talent to watch in 2012 and beyond. Coaxing ‘Dance Around The Subject’ from the fringes to the middle of the dancefloor, he serves up Gang Colours’ cascading synth slivers on a thumping warehouse groove. Next up is our own Alex Patchwork (Patchwork Pirates / Earnest Endeavours) who accelerates the lilting melodies of ‘Fireworks In Pocket’ with a nod to Chicago’s footwork movement, flipping overweight 808s and chattering percussion. Frederic Robinson is a young German producer who instils amazing charm and character in his D&B productions, pushing the sound into new territories. His contribution to Brownswood electr*c 2 – ‘Mood Swings’ – was a highlight for many. Here he blesses ‘In Your Gut Like A Knife’ with his signature warmth and sensitivity. Reppin’ the Bay Area, DJ Dials is another Brownswood electr*c alumnus, his arpeggiated ode to heartbreak ‘Pillowforts’ struck a chord with Gang Colours and he was therefore a natural choice to rework ‘Fireworks…’, fashioning a charming, drowsy, half-time emo stepper.
