Melbourne multi-instrimentalist/producer Fractures has taken on Snakadaktal‘s track ‘Hung On Tight‘, transforming it in to a slow and progressive electronic jam. Stadium drums have been replaced with a rhythmic percussion pattern which is full of hypnotising tom-toms that sparkle like firecrackers between the speakers.
A combination of organic tones and sliding synths enhance the lush and expansive sound of the original and channel it into the ethereal realm. This re-work really demonstrates the signature sound that Fractures (the alia’s of Mark Zito) is defining for himself and it definitely clicks with Snakadakal, creating a fantastic compliment.
While taking some time to recover from a fractured neck (an unfortunite coincidence) , Fractures has recently teamed up with other local musicians including his own remix of Owl Eyes and a Willow Beats remix of his single ‘Twisted‘
Meanwhile, local kids Snakadaktal have just released their debut album ‘Sleep In The Water‘ and are touring nationally with special guests Fishing. For more info, check them out on Facebook and suss out the tour dates below.
