I just noticed, a little too late one might argue, that Plastic Cowboys has finally slinked surreptitiously past its double century of posts. So, well done, er, me i guess. Ha.
Anyway, for our first foray into our third century i thought i'd write about an artist i haven't really mentioned for about a year and half, when he dropped the limp bizkit sampling, absolutely crushing "Antisocial" on us. All violent bass and aggressive drops, Raffertie made his name through the same means as 16bit, an experimental cross between house and dubstep.
Now, however, he is experimenting with his own sound further and has come up with a Wild Beasts remix which is a much more stripped back piece of house music which really took me by surprise but also works very well and is one of my favourite tracks at the moment.
The opening may easily be mistaken for something in his earlier style, but the track rapidly progresses through stripped back melodies, almost tribal drums with the haunting vocals floating over the top, transforming the original into an eerie, late night piece of house that i've become rather fond of dropping in dark rooms. More of this please Mr. Raffertie.
