Husky Rescue

Premiere: “Fast Lane (2 Bit Thugs Remix)” MP3

Sep 22, 2010

Listen to this track

The original version of Husky Rescue's "Fast Lane," appears on the Finnish quintet's third LP, Ship of Light. The fecund and luminous soundscape was composed by Marko Nyberg using the Memorymoog, an polyphonic, organ-like synth instrument that was used in the early-'80s. It's a pretty little pop tune. Check it out here.

The Brighton house duo, 2 Bit Thugs, recently remixed the track for its single release next week. They stretch out HR's skittering, tinkling percussion into infinity and Reeta-Leena Korhola's frosty vox floats over a wobbly drill-n-bass beat. Listen to this one on your headphones. Ship of Light comes out October 5 via Catskills. You can stream more songs at the Helsinki ensemble's MySpace.
