Slo-mo with: Animat – Neptune’s Crazy Horses (Remix by Åyusp) #Electronic #Minimal #NewMusic

It’s all too much. My legs hurt. The isolation bit means no street football. I’ve been reduced to taking up running. Never liked it at school. Still don’t. Legs feel leaden. So this track from Animat felt totally suitable. It’s an ultra slo-mo tune. All minimal and swirling underwater.

On Neptune’s Crazy Horses (Remix by Åyusp) everything is slowly dubbed in an ambient synthwave manner. The track has a bit of a back story. All Is Lost is a 2013 survival drama film written and directed by J. C. Chandor, starring Robert Redford as a man lost at sea. Animat composed and performed a new soundtrack in 2019 which uses elements from the film’s sound effects track in combination with dub-infused ambient electronica. Now, the Undercurrents EP features remixes from the album.

The remix for this track is by Åyusp an electronic synth duo from Sheffield. It’s a brilliant nine minute ambient affair. There’s a synth-based sense of the 70s with a slowly twinkling disco glitterball. But it’s got early 90s beats and a sheen of underwater ethereal liquidity. Dive in, the water’s great.
