Whyte Horses – The Best Of It (The Go! Team Remix) #experimental electronic #psychedelia #downtempo

The Whyte Horses (Dom Thomas) offers a pychedelic electronic experience on The Best Of It. There’s a channelling of Roger Moore and Tony Curtis (The Persuaders) in the debt this track owes to their John Barry theme tune. It has a similar storm of clavierchords(?) and all manner of strings. On The Best Of It the pychedelic swirl is much in evidence alongside the clatter of cereal box and biscuit tin drums that I associate with The Go! Team who provide the remix. The track breaks out a bit of a vocal that slightly struggles to be heard from La Roux. Overall, a totally joyous, immersive experience that demands you clap your hands with pleasure.

Check the comparison for yourself:

Blurb: Following the recent release of their first ever official video for ‘Never Took The Time’, with both an English version and French version (‘Demain N’Attend Pas’) released on July 26th, Whyte Horses have just shared a remix of ‘The Best Of It’ by The Go! Team. Explaining how the remix came into existence, Dom Thomas (Whyte Horses) explains “I’ve always been a fan of Ian’s (The Go! Team) melody writing and ear for a tune. He’s been a great writing partner over the last few years and has helped me in hour of need when I couldn’t take a song any further. He gets what we do and we have a similar outlook on music. It was a natural fit asking him to rework Best of It. It’s got all the hallmarks of a classic Go Team! track. It’s completely Instantaneous and addictive, a proper remix.” Taken from their latest ‘Empty Words’ album, the remix drops just a few weeks before The Go! Team will join The Whyte Horses Experiences (alongside La Roux, Badly Drawn Boy and Melanie Pain) at their huge multi-media, special guest-laden headline show at Royal Festival Hall on September 13th.
