PREVIEW THE DJ: Arthur Baker’s MySpace
LISTEN: “Life Magazine” by Cold Cave (The Arthur Baker’s Not Going Back Remix)
Now that we’re past the Pantha Du Prince mess, Cold Cave finally gets a remix of “Life Magazine” worth jumping to. Unlike Pantha Du Prince, Baker builds the mix around the chorus’ amazing beat. Why one would avoid the best part of the song is beyond me, but I’m happy there’s finally a mix that does the original some justice. It takes it’s time with a long build-up by breaking into a great crash and flow, whirling the original beats with warped high-pitched ones. The song is apart of a collection of Cold Cave remixes, called “The Life Magazine “12,” being released by Matador Records on June 8th.
