Beacon

Escapements Remixes

Six months after Beacon released their second full-length, Escapements, comes eight new edits that expand, rework, and uncover sounds that are buried deep in the texture of the original tracks. Tomas Barfod’s reimagining of “IM U” takes the listener through a jungle of percussion while Thomas Mullarney’s vocal line glides over the accelerated bass lick amid a pool of harmonies and reverb. Time Wharp’s take on “Hollow” starts with a swirling mesh of overlapping loops before it snaps into a dark midnight shuffle. On his take of “Escapements,” Ghostly’s own Logan Takahashi reconfigures the track with a mysterious and driving atmosphere, shimmering with maracas, rain sticks and stretched vocals. Additional remixes by Kim Ann Foxman, Nitemoves, BAILE, TWINKIDS, and Applescal round out the remainder of the EP.
