Premiere: Lakuta – Pique (Contours Remix)
It's Frrrrriiiiday, and Afro-soul collective Lakuta have a new EP out today on Tru Thoughts! It's called So Sue Us, and has already seen support from the likes of Julie Adenuga, Rob Da Bank, Basement Jaxx and Laurent Garnier. The EP is home to the title track along with seven rather excellent remixes of tracks from Lakuta's debut album Brothers & Sisters.
We're premiering a remix of 'Pique', by Manchester-based drummer/producer Tom Burford (aka Contours), who you might know from his amazing Rhythm Section EP Technician. Here, he wisely sticks to what made the original track so effective, adding in groovy breakbeats and splashing some interstellar synths across the canvas. Despite (or rather because of) the unusual time signature, Contours has transformed 'Pique' into a real dancefloor heater. Listen below:
