I have to say, I like this guy’s choices in songs to remix. Alan Wilkis is on point once again in his interpretation of Yeasayer’s hit, “Ambling Amp”. Here he strips some of the psychedlia fare, lets the chorus breathe and adds more ’80′s inspired fun.
I’ll let Alan explain:

I tried to approach my remix with that similar attention to detail in mind. I re-harmonized the song into a minor key, and I mixed a number of electronic sounds (synths, bleeps, boops) with live instruments (banjo, live hi-hat & snare drum). The song struck me as having some African influences deep in it – I tried to tease those out a bit more, although filtered through my bizarre-child-of-the-80s lens…
