Hot As Sun's track “Only A Woman” gets the prized Blood Diamonds remix treatment, tricked out with a fresh set of mystic keys, panning vocal chops from Jamie Jackson and Deborah Stoll with sound loops of rolling waves and a thunderstorm to commence the occasion. Michael Tucker entertains Jamie & Deborah's love for treating the vocals with reverb and effects of dissonance and displacement by placing Jackson's lyrical delivery at the center of a keyboard sustain tunnel with spontaneous bursts of scaling utterances in the grand curation of a proper Blood Diamonds enchanted abstraction.
The Michael Diamonds treatment of the Silverlake duo matches the vocal sample to dovetail alongside the high definition keyboard glow. Whereas many producers seek to obfuscate the elemental facets of an original tune with various degrees of distortion, the remix of “Only A Woman” only seeks to brighten the contrast like a jeweled safari adventure of discovery within an aural, tropical rainforest set somewhere on the western coasts of the Americas.
Also enjoy the Waverlystock visual of Jamie & Deborah driving into the heart of the storm with the windshield wipers waving.
You will find this remix as well as Tokyo Police Club's remix of “Come Come” on the re-release of Hot As Sun's self-titled EP June 19 from Toronto's Last Gang Records.
