Best Remix: Groundislava "TV Dream"

Last month FOF label released the EP ‘TV Dream’ by Jasper Patterson, AKA Groundislava, in preparation for his sophomore effort titled ‘Feel Me’ due out August 28th.  Although I am not the biggest fan of the EP, I did enjoy the beautifully chilled title track.  Steeped with mellow synths and a catchy hexagonal drum pad beat, Patterson crafts a rich soundscape with an 80’s synth-pop sound that had me feeling very nostalgic.  

This week label mate Tomas Barfod remixed ‘TV Dream’ giving the track a darker sound by changing subtle elements like a heavier drum beat, some restructuring of the vocoder and peppering in smooth builds.  Even with those changes, the 80’s vibe remains intact but I found Barfod’s remix had that extra push to chill and cruise.  Both are great tracks, check’em out.
