LITTLE LOUD – THE REMIXES – PART 9
We run an ongoing series here on The Recommender called ‘Remix Specials‘, where we select those artists, producers and DJs who have built up a significantly impressive collection of remixes. Previous editions involved The Twelves, Soulwax, The Knocks, The Shoes, Bloc Party, Starsmith, The Golden Filter and DiscoTech.
We’ve had one eye secured on today’s DJ, Little Loud, ever since we first heard his remix of Yeasayer‘s Madder Red. His remixes have a certain signature to them, like all the best re-edits, giving them a new twist and injecting a fresh energy to them. With him this recognizable gene is found in the long, slow build ups which end with a triumphant four beat.
There’s flavours of chillwave and bottled sunshine inside his creations, turning them into what are essentially slow electronic pop tracks. He also leaves the bones of each track secured in place, which is a good sign, for if you butcher a track when remixing you have to ask yourself why you selected it in the first place.
Little Loud, aka Will Phillips, is in his early 20′s and comes from our home city of Brighton, so we hope to meet up with him soon. We’ve heard that he’s currently working on a batch of new, original works in the studio, which are set to see daylight some time in 2011. We will of course let you know the second that they break.
His collection of commissioned edits are not only extremely good, but we also consider the artists that he works with to be perfectly on message with The Recommender. He is one of the hottest studio stars to watch for next year, but in the mean time we are more than happy to welcome him onto our hallowed Remix Specials. Enjoy. (MB)
