Following the release of his album earlier this year via City Slang, Austin musician Bayonne is now sharing a rework of the lead single “Drastic Measures“ by Slow Magic.
Speaking about the rework, Slow Magic said “I had a really fun time working on this remix. It was my first time working on a remix in the 5/4 time signature which posed a unique and fun challenge. Typically remixes and electronic music sticks with a normal 4/4 time signature so I think the end result is something interesting. The vocals were also great to work with and since the original song was so great to begin with I wanted to take the remix in a whole different direction.”
Each song on Bayonne‘s Drastic Measures is orchestral in texture, unfolding in countless layers and kaleidoscopic tones. With great intensity of detail, the Austin-based artist deepens that sonic complexity by weaving in elegantly warped samples of the field recordings he’s gathered for over a decade. But in its powerful melodies and pristine arrangements, Drastic Measures ultimately bears a pure pop lucidity even in its most grandiose moments.
