Crooked Colours - Flow (Remixes)
After an 18-month hiatus Crooked Colours returned to the spotlight last month with ‘Flow’, a smooth indie-house jam taken from their forthcoming debut album. Rounding off the single release is a three-track remix package, released via Sweat It Out.
Having hit the top spot on Hype Machine’s chart, as well as causing serious ripples in the blogosphere and beyond, ‘Flow’ was always going to be a hard task to remix. Nonetheless, Thomas Jack and Jesse Rose execute their remixes with precision and flare, both taking the track into darker, more underground realms. Jack, whose pioneering ‘trop-house’ style influenced the likes of Kygo and Matoma, moves away from this genre and instead transforms the cut into a slow burning techno groove, a sound that he has been expertly curating as of late.
Jesse Rose, whose accolades include a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and a Mixmag Top 10 DJ’s listing, takes a similar path to Jack. With a bouncy bass line, and cut up vocals the remix gives the track club appeal that will undoubtedly see it as a mainstay in tech-house sets for the coming months.
Capping off the package is an extended mix (‘Re-Rub’) which stays true to the original in the most part whilst adding a more dance-orientated intro and outro.
Currently on a headline tour across Australia, the guys are building momentum for their full album release in June. Keep your eyes peeled for all new announcements via their socials:
