Olympia-bred Braxton/Palmer had his blueprint set in stone since the outset of his remix for indie-pop darlings Keep Shelly in Athens. On his version of “Madmen Love,” lush chords swirl alongside deep kicks and reverb-drenched vocals which zig-zag in the spaces between his trademarked squelching bassline. While Keep Shelly in Athens is no stranger to forward-thinking music, their latest single for Cascine might be the most off-kilter thing they’ve ever done, a droning, skittering slab of trip-hop tinged paranoia. But Braxton/Palmer’s surprising five-minute remix turns the affair inside out, bringing all the hallmarks of his sound to the tune and burying the vocals from Sarah P. underneath a persistent house groove.
