Chet Faker - Talk Is Cheap Remixes
Ta-ku and Kaytranada apply their unique set of skills to Chet Faker's huge single.
Last night we saw Chet Faker do his live thang at the Astor Theatre, and while the hangover is still too strong to encapsulate all of our thoughts regarding said show right now, there's definitely head space to share a couple of dope remixes laid out for the bearded one.
First up Kaytranada gives it the old Kaytranada flip, applying his signature sounds on a housier tip. All of Kaytranada's drums sound so live, which I love. Once it gets going though it's all club groove and eery synths. The sax from the original gets left out, and I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but it's a choice that doesn't detract from the tune in anyway.
Ta-ku goes the darker route, but still packing plenty of those feels he's pretty come to have complete ownership of. It makes for a seriously well rounded little selection of music. The original, Ta-ku's take and Kaytranada's flip sound so different, and are all suitable for completely different situations, but all work so well. It's not surprising given the quality of the people involved.
Chet Faker is still touring Built On Glass - head to his FACEBOOK to see if there's any dates/tickets remaining.
