Mew – Water Slides (Graham Massey from 808 State Remix) (2015)

Mew-Water-Slides-560x560

A couple of songs from the record have surfaced so far, but Water Slides is the lead single leading up to the record’s release – and, as that release date approaches, the band have shared a new remix of the song by 808 State’s Graham Massey. Massey has put his name to a lot of remixes over his 20+ year career with 808 State, but the past couple of years have seen him tone down on the remix output. Maybe he’s only taking on jobs when he can do something wild, as in the case of this rework of Water Slides, which hollows out most traces of the original song, turning it into a spectral yet funky machine dub.
