The Montreal-based experimental trio joined forces with DJ Python for a reworked version of their lead single from the recently released record, Shadow Offering via Secret City Records.
DJ Python’s remix of “Young Buck” is both hypnotic and enthralling. The modulations of the vocals create a more atmospheric sound, adding to this new ambience.
In terms of how the eclectic collaboration came about, the band mentions, “Upon receiving DJ Python’s remix of our track Young Buck, my pining for the dance floor kicked in”, explains Braids. “I pulled my car over to an empty parking lot and turned the volume up as far as it could go. Alone beside the concrete barriers of a now desolate shopping mall, I was reminded of bodies beside bodies, of a night that you never want to end, of sweat, of joy. For a moment I was transported from my new and uncomfortable reality: distanced, living through a pandemic, to memories streaming behind my closed eyes, of a life lived prior, and one that will be lived again. This track offers the fuel needed to keep going, the energy needed to stay hopeful. When I close my eyes and dance to it in my living room, I am at the club and the club is with me.”
