Though this year has seen much of Submerse‘s focus placed on his own original productions (the UK artist issued his debut LP, Slow Waves, via Project: Mooncircle back in July), the recent XLR8R podcast contributor has clearly not lost any of his abilities as a remixer in the process. Here, Submerse is tasked with reworking former US, now Japan-based beatmaker Repeat Pattern‘s “Half of Half,” a track which originally appeared on his Counting Backwards EP for Tokyo’s Moph label. As to be expected, in Submerse’s hands the tune is shaped into a hazy mass of textured hip-hop, one lined with sparkling bell samples and kept steady by a spare-but-effective series of deep kicks, sharp snares, and detailed bits of percussion.
