The track is “Catch Your Breath (Dobie Remix)” and it can be listened to below.
Speaking with Playground UK, Verasect gives some insight into the making of the remix:
“I met Dobie last year when his work was featured in a skate photography exhibition in London that I organized. I had only known him as a photographer for many months until our curator and mutual friend brought up that we both were musicians. We started talking shop and I found out about all the great work he’s done. Bjork is one of my top artists and I was amazed to learn that he made one of my favourite tracks on her remix album Telegram.
“After the exhibition was over, we started hanging and jamming in my studio in Shoreditch. One day I played him my then-unreleased EP Sleep Stories. He immediately gravitated towards ‘Catch Your Breath’ as it has a moody trip-hop vibe and wanted to remix it. Dobie disappeared for a week and came back with a spectacular finished track.” ‘Catch Your Breath’ is at its heart a breakup song and Dobie retained the sadness of the original but took it in a more musical direction with big organic drums and beautiful melancholy piano chords. The second half kicks it up with an unexpected crunchy distorted guitar riff as it descends into a chaotic low-fi dreamscape. I was so happy with the result that it inspired me to seek out more remixers and release this upcoming EP.” says Verasect.
With the Kareful and 0fdream remixes already shared, this EP can’t come soon enough.
