Disclosure feat. Eliza Doolittle - You & Me (Bicep Remix).
(I know I’ve posted this already but I wanted to write something properly about it).
Following the instant success of Disclosure's most recent single, a string of remixes have appeared for 'You & Me' by the likes of Baauer, Toro Y Moi and Bicep.
Bicep's rendition of the devilishly catchy disco house track is by far my favourite. The warm sounding synths are stripped away and the steady beat is replaced with bouncing house drums and drum skitters. Eliza Doolittle's vocals are spaced out and drowned in reverb, her voice beautifully echoing all around the soundscape.
The track builds builds up, with Doolittle’s lyric “we’re meant to be" becoming a catchy hook amongst the thudding bass drum. As the track breaks down, a propulsive yet minimal beat leads with warbling synth jolts.
This would utterly wreck a dancefloor.
