Sometimes a great remix can lift the quality of a song to a new level – but it’s even more fascinating when you hear the rework before the original. This barely happens but it’s actually the case in this fascinating new joint venture by German experimental pop duo We Will Kaleid (who we introduced last year) and beloved composer Jan Wagner (who we also interviewed last year and who also produced that great Rosa Anschütz debut album). The composer completely rearranged Mute, a yet to be released new single from the band and even without knowing the original the result is pretty stunning. Built on a small vocal loop Wagner needs less than four minutes to create a haunting cinematic soundtrack around it. It’s one of those songs that really makes you stop and listen and actually longs for an even longer journey. Maybe we’ll get it. The original will most likely be featured on the band’s upcoming second EP Aphasiac which will arrive later this spring.
