First Listen: C. Diab – ‘Ice’ (Guy Andrews Remix)

A cinematic rework from the Houndstooth producer.

Following the release of the No Perfect Wave LP on Injazero in October 2016, Vancouver-based bowed guitar player and tape manipulator, C. Diab, is now releasing a four-track remix EP, the No Perfect Wave remixes. It features impressive reworks from Ambassadeurs, fellow Injazero artist Heinali and Kelpe.

London-based producer and Houndstooth affiliate Guy Andrews has contributed a sprawling epic of a remix for album track ‘Ice’. Speaking on C. Diab’s work, Andrews said:

“I haven’t heard anything like C. Diab’s music in a long while. There is a real beauty in how he composes. I made almost all of the remix in the early hours of the morning whilst waiting for a connecting flight in Copenhagen airport… I hadn’t managed to sleep much, so I wanted to capture the high levels of fatigue I was experiencing, creating a haze of digital mess which dissipates into moments of clarity.”

It makes for emotive listening, stream it in full below.

The No Perfect Wave remixes EP is out May 17. Pre-order it here.
