(Premiere) Zoon van snooK – The Gaits (feat. Sin Fang) (Paul Hartnoll Remix)

Aug 13 2013

Images of a blissful evening looking out onto the vast expanse of the ocean come to mind when listening to Paul Hartnoll’s (of Orbital) remix of Zoon van snooK’s “The Gaits.” You can almost feel the wind in your hair and sand between your toes.

Paul Hartnoll’s take on the track starts off calm and thoughtful, backed by the sounds of a full orchestra. This ambient (albeit balearic though I have such hatred for the word) has a classical sense of composition; tension and tempo build slowly up until the 3:20 mark when the symphony really begins. “The Gaits” is the second single to be taken from Zoon van snooK’s critically acclaimed new album ‘The Bridge Between Life & Death’ and features a contribution from Sin Fang of Icelandic band Seabear (MORR).

The single with remixes from Paul and Ulrich Schnauss is out now on iTunes via Lo Recordings.
