If you hadn't had a chance of checking Tor's full-length 2021 release Oasis Sky and our interview with the Canadian producer, I highly encourage you to do that. A true masterpiece when it comes to ambient and downtempo-driven electronica. "Eleuthera", album's closing composition, was one of my personal highlights and being able to talk about it again brings me joy today.
A few days ago Tor shared with me this upcoming remix by the one and only Catching Flies - someone we've been fans of for a long, long time. Kicking off with an ethereal piano, brushed snare drums and steady kick, his re-imagination emerges with light percussion and reverb laced vocal chops. This gives way to a minimalist breakdown and melody change-up before Catching Flies brings in a hefty lead synth line and builds into an immense comeback of drums and melody.
