Here, London’s Max Cooper (pictured above) translates “Careless,” a song by fellow countrymen Get People, into a hypnotic bit of ambient micro-techno, reminding us immediately of The Field or even the new Gold Panda album. But while the production’s swelling synth tones, thick filter washes, incessant bass pulses, and ultra-chopped vocal bits may seem completely on loan, Cooper does treat the sounds with care and respect, as any artist should. This new version of “Careless” builds slowly and subtly with an inherent shimmer that shines throughout from its bustling core. It shows that even when toying with the tools, tricks, and sounds of others, Cooper can infuse a song with the necessary soul to stand out among his peers.
