- Kape Fear Cousn Remix
White Label | 26.04.2019
Following the success of their debut album ‘The Omnitone Collection’, Elder Island team up with dance music duo Cousn to deliver a hard-hitting remix of fan favourite ‘Kape Fear’.
?Elder Island’s diverse musical influences are elevated by the duo’s astute musical touch, transforming the original into a funk-filled dance anthem. Introducing a thunderous kick drum to accompany Katy’s vocals, the rhythmic percussion samples gradually build to create a haunting melody infused with Dave’s trademark choppy guitar and a buoyant synth bass riff.
?Growing up in close-knit musical families, Alfie & Billy Goffery formed Cousn after attending Glastonbury when they were sixteen years old. Since then they have spent the last six years honing their craft both in the studio and on the live circuit where they have performed at the likes of Warehouse Project, Wilderness, Glastonbury, Motion and Secret Garden Party. Cousn have had a strong start to 2019, after being named as Pete Tong’s ‘Rising Stars’ and also supported Fatboy Slim across all of his UK arena tour dates.?? Discussing the remix, Cousn state: “Our ideas came together fairly easily which is always a good sign, adding in live drums and an acid baseline to compliment dreamy, hypnotic vocals. We felt it was really important to stay true to the original as it is such a good song.”
?Elder Island’s debut LP was met with glowing praise from fans and media alike. As well as a cover feature for Bristol in Stereo, the trio also received support from EARMILK, Highsnobiety, XLR8R, PopMatters, Wonderland and Clash, with the latter describing their sound as “sitting somewhere between the pointed pop of Little Dragon and Bonobo’s gorgeous electronics.”? ?Fresh from a hugely successful world tour, Elder Island have already announced a new string of UK and USA dates – including their biggest ever headline show at Camden’s Roundhouse this Autumn.
