This remix cuts out a bit of what was awesome about the original — the slow syrup of Matthew Dear’s vocal samples. But Bear In Heaven add other vocals to puzzle over, and while their version has a lot more energy, there are a couple times where it also felt like it was drifting out of time or melting away, much like Dear’s original. And it sounds like a lot of the layers on this remix are Dear’s vocals, sliced into half-syllables. Have a listen:
