Serving as the a-side to Brooklyn producer Cubby‘s (pictured above) recent 12″ for Mermaid Ave., “Hooded” has been handed over to London resident Otik for a remix treatment. A somewhat unpredictable effort in its original form, Otik redirects the energy of Cubby’s track in order to take “Hooded” down a more ravey path. After its initial intro, a brooding bassline signals a change of speed for Otik’s rework, its elongated notes met by a barrage of chopped breaks that keep his version of “Hooded” moving at a breakneck pace.
