Destructo celebrates 10k fans with Giorgio Moroder vs. SBTRKT mashup
If you follow Gary Richards on social media, chances are you saw hints of the prize for fans if his Destructo alias hit 10k Soundcloud followers. That day has arrived, and “Chasing Pharaohs” the payoff. A mashup of Giorgio Moroder’s 1978 instrumental “The Chase” with SBTRKT’s far more recent “Pharaohs,” the HARD mastermind’s rendition is so well mashed as to have formed a seamless new substance. Though relying largely on “The Chase” for the backbone and cutting the history lesson about eight minutes short of the original, what is perhaps most impressive about the tune is its timeless feel.
