As the temperature heats up, Tycho has recruited fellow California duo Poolside for a laid-back remix of “Horizon,” off his latest album Epoch in 2016. The production mirrors the two-syllable name the group has chosen for themselves, best fit for listening in a chaise lounge with a frozen, fruit-flavored drink in hand.
Poolside offer a complementary color to the original, maintaining the swell of the atmospheric pads but trading in the guitar-driven progression for a four-on-the-floor jam. Like the reflection of light on the pool’s surface, cascading arps ring in the air and a sensuous vocal addition is carried in the gentle breeze. Tycho offers his thoughts on the release:
“I was looking for a counterpoint in production for the remix. Poolside gave it a much sunnier vibe.”
