Listen: Hermitude - Dark Night Sweet Light (Tobacco Rat Album Remix)
Hermitude's new album gets condensed into two glitched-out minutes.
The production alias of KUČKA's Jake Steele, Tobacco Rat is an outlet for the producer to dig deeper into dark, subterranean beats, and this immensely condensed remix of Hermitude's just-released new album is a perfect example. Steele only recently announced the new project with the release of first single Cavities, a twisted, warping beast incorporating field records, which Steele has said will be the basis for a lot of Tobacco Rat's sound. His remix of Dark Night Sweet Light is glitchier affair in comparison to Cavities, understandable when you're trying to compress snippets of a full album into 2 minutes and 24 seconds. That said the disjointed nature of the song only adds to the intrigue of where Steele is planning on taking Tobacco Rat, a journey I'm looking forward to following.
