Inspired by the experimental sound of UK artist Sam Thomas, Alt-J drummer Thom Green, decided to remix his addictive single “I’m Gonna Be A Witch” while on the road to Coachella and provided a more dancefloor-orientated vibe. The singer himself appreciates this gestures and comments on the rework.
“Remixing is a hobby I’m becoming more and more interested in” he said recently. “Manipulating sounds on the fly is kind of similar to playing live drums, you can work around the sounds making new ones and that’s pretty exciting. With this track the stems gave me a huge pallet of ideas to work from making it fairly easy to get started which doesn’t always happen. I love the vocals, they remind me of minimal techno/dubstep tracks which is why my remix ended up the way it did, it felt right to give a pulse to the vocal.”
