AHHH SHIT: Our Friend
Ahhh Shit is a recurring post on any new band, song or video that has recently grabbed my attention. Yes, the title is a reference to the opening of “Potholderz” by MF Doom.
So Bristol-based Our Friend, who is actually our friend and made podcasts mixes for us in the past, has released his remix of run,WALK!’s seminal track N.B.Y. It’s a complete strip-down, only maintaing an element of the song’s distinct bass-line. Our Friend reconstructs the song in an electronica mould, reminiscent of both Mount Kimbie and Gold Panda. It’s weird because despite this chopping and changing, it still retains the sense of the original, one of the more calmed elements of the hardcore duo’s 2010 mini-album, I Hope This All Works Out So I Can Stop Stepping On Even Amounts Of Manholes In the Street. Stream the remix below, first of what we hope will be a long line of material from Our Friend.
