Deradoorian – High Road (Tanlines Remix)

Not content with being in a wildly successful, genre-defying, chamber pop sextet, Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian has decided that she’d like to have a go at being a solo artist too. The results haven’t always hit the heights of her collaborative endeavours, but the recent re-release of her 2009 EP, Mind Raft, has seen a couple of remixes added to the five tracks that received a roundly muted response upon their original release last May.

One of these remixes has thrown up an absolute gem; Tanlines taking the soaring vocals and close harmonising, that have become a hallmark of Deradoorian’s work with the DPs, and giving it an 80s R&B rework, complete with haunting synths and a razor sharp analogue drum machine line.

The result is a masterful example of a slow burning pop song, more emotive and driving than its original and hopefully a combination we’ll be treated to again.
