Passion Pit – Carried Away (Silent Rider Remix)
Brooklyn producer, Silent Rider (fronted by Reed Kackley) has done the Passion Pit boys a real favour here. No one can dispute the fact that PP are the kings of mood enhancing synth-pop, but sometimes change is good.
Kackley’s minamilst approach to this remix is akin to de-cluttering a horder’s house. This living room once over flowing with colourful, quirky ornaments, sleeping tabby cats and too many occasional tables is now a picture of simplicity. Stripped right back, slowed right down, a few effortless strums, a smattering of snares is all that’s required.
