Tinariwen "Toumast Tincha" (the Antlers remix)
Published Nov 10, 2014After receiving the remix treatment from Daniel Lanois last week, Tinariwen are letting UK crew the Antlers mess up the desert blues template via a revamp of "Toumast Tincha."
The new remix from Antlers member Peter Silberman is a spaciously-paced affair, with the lean groove of the Emmaar track being slathered in a Vaseline-thick coating of reverb and distortion. The vocals come through a little less clearly, sounding as if captured during a bad-connection phone call.
You'll find the hazier exploration of the already hypnotic track down below.
The remix comes ahead of tonight's (November 10) "Anti-Thesis" show at Brooklyn's Masonic Temple. The night was curated by Lanois, and features sets from him, Tinariwen, and the Antlers.
