Joining Micachu, Weird Tapes (aka Memory Cassette aka Memory Tapes aka Dayve Hawk) recently put a remix spin on the LA Afropop collective Fool’s Gold. Because that is what he does. Dayve excised the original’s Hebrew passages for his take, working with “Nadine”‘s English vocal and replacing the track’s lilt and slithering horn and guitar lines with laptop beats and a pithy late night electropop tool kit. It’s six-and-a-half minutes and about half as many movements, flipping from sexy warmup to blissy booty beat comedown before ramping up again with some keyboard tones dialed in for the afterparty. It’s your whole night out in one track.
