The Big Pink – Beautiful Criminal (Kauf Remix)
British band The Big Pink commence their North American tour this week and to coincide have released “Empire Underground” The Remixes, which features remixes by Elliphant, Aquilo, Kauf and Jamie Hince(The Kills).
Check out Kauf’s hypnotic take on Beautiful Criminal here:
With his original productions Kauf has achieved that nearly impossible feat of making dance music that is also song led and lyrically deep. There just aren’t that many records that work in the club and also explores the emotional conflicts and internal struggles that life poses. Having previously remixed Poliça, Public Service Broadcasting and more, his remixes draw from a similar vein. Often identifying with a specific mood of the original piece and then distilling that down intoits essence. Mesmerising and meditative. Thistake on Beautiful Criminal is a prime example of this talent. With his debut album ‘ReGrowth’ out in August, response to the first single ‘Through The Yard’ has been excellent. Friday the 29th April see’s the release of the Fort Romeau remix of ‘Through The Yard’ via Permanent Vacation.
