The Sky Was Pink

I beg to differ- the sky this week is most definitely blue (admittedly with pink and orange streaks at sunset). Back in 2004 Nathan Fake’s The Sky Was Pink was remixed by James Holden, an epic ten minute job with processed beats, effects and a melody that surfaces and disappears and resurfaces. The bassline pounds along and as the track progresses the beats get harder and everything is a little bit more intense than everything else.

The Sky Was Pink (James Holden Remix)


Triangle Folds

This track from James Holden, famous now for remixing Madonna, Depeche Mode and Britney, came out on a DJ Kicks compilation back in 2010 and seems to set out with the ambition of marrying dance music with German electronic cosmische music of the 70s and 80s. He not only succeeds but goes way beyond.
