Closer (Pinch Remix)

I've not been that into Photek's records this year if I'm honest. Amazingly produced, and they hit on all the right frequencies, but the ideas seem a bit stale. His latest one, 'Closer' is the best of his recent releases by far though: the emphasis is still very much on cinematics and samurais, but the overall effect is more 13th hour soul than the bleary bass hits of his last two EPs. Even better is Pinch's remix, which manages to be ghostly and still while sporting one of the most threatening basslines you'll hear anywhere - think Holy Other tooled for a peak-time soundsystem.
