T. Williams Remixes Mikky Ekko’s “Pull Me Down”
The most interesting facet of T. Williams’ music, and especially his most recent Rinse 21 mix CD, is that despite its sometimes abrasive qualities (grime influences, off-kilter rhythms), it almost always appears primed for a vocal assist. The Pain & Love EP justified this assumption, pairing Tesfa Williams with several vocalists and his remix of Disclosure’s “Latch” solidified his vocal-driven credentials. Whether you prefer sans-vocals Williams is somewhat irrelevant, because it appears that’s the direction he’s taking, although a return to “Chop & Screw” would also be welcomed. Anyways, Williams recently remixed RCA songsmith Mikky Ekko’s “Pull Me Down” into a percolating piece of Miike Snow-esque pop music. It wouldn’t be a T. Williams joint without the shuffling percussion and almost imperceptibly bouncy bassline. The track is up for free download below, but Williams has hinted that he will be uploading a 320 version soon so it might be worth it to hold out ;).
