Bass Clef has been busy. The Hackney brass enthusiast recently celebrated the release of his excellent debut album Reeling Skullways - and now he’s joined a band.
The producer is one of two new members of Snorkel, a krauty trio that has, in form at least, quite a lot in common with Ma – a jazz three-piece about whom we posted about earlier today. The One Long Conundrum EP features their first new material since their warmly received Stop Machine LP, along with a clutch of fantastic remixes, one of which we are happy to premiere here today.
Crewdson will be familiar to regular readers of Best Fit, his skittish electronica having graced these pages several times before. In his hands Snorkel’s ‘Dead Skin’ is shorn of its threatening overtones and is instead recast as a stop-start update of Jamie Lidell’s ‘A Little Bit More’, full of chiming bells and warped rhythm.
One Long Conundrum is out 11 June on Slowfoot. Crewdson’s Gravity Remixes EP is out a week later. In the meantime, you can download ‘Dead Skin’ below.
