Balam Acab Remixes Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo”

Yesterday, the steadily on-point LDN-based label Tri Angle turned one-year old. Take this is as the unofficial celebratory MP3, from Balam Acab — one of the roster’s finest mixers of the languid, haunting, and pretty — as the 21-year-old does all of those things to the decidedly not languid nor haunting (but certainly pretty) uptempo bass music classic “My Boo.” The pulse gets pulled down and the vocals are pitched up, Balam’s spectral wobble and celestial chiming fill in the spaces — it becomes ghostly in a way Ghost Town DJ’s were only in name. Grab:

Balam Acab’s own debut full-length WANDER / WONDER is out 8/29 via Tri Angle. Try “Oh, Why,” or “Apart.”


Another great moment in “My Boo” history, here’s Cam’ron and Dipset making it into “I Wanna Be Your Lady”:
