Public Service Broadcasting’s use of samples, together with their solid rhythms and sharp, punctuated instrumental passage, has often lent itself well to remixes in the past (the Syntax remix of Spitfire, or the Night Mail remixes being prime examples). Here, Psychemagik takes the funked up horns of Gagarin and fashions them into disco dance-floor wedges fit for the shimmiest of shimmiers, giving Gagarin new togs and a new vibe to boot.
Public Service Broadcast’s second album, The Race For Space, is out on Monday 23rd February, on Test Card Recordings. Given the overall theme of the album, what we’re really hoping for is a remix project that sets the complete work in its samples’ original era. Something along the lines of the temporal and tonal shift of the BadBadNotGood lounge-legend remix of Waiting on You by Future Islands, perhaps.
