Four Tet captures hearts with astral remix of Tame Impala’s ‘Is it True?’

Four Tet has remixed Tame Impala‘s “Is It True?”—successfully fuzing two of 2020’s more defining audio aesthetics in the form of a chilled club track.

Although the original’s indie-funk has been left at the door, Four Tet does what he can to preserve Tame Impala’s psychedelic dreamscapes, churning in his signature synthed-out string sound along the way. The remix finds its real success, however, in its spacey ambiance and harmony found throughout its various complementary elements. Sure, the remix has a lead instrument, but rather than push it so far forward that it controls the track, Four Tet pulls it back with a touch of veteran restraint, allowing the tune’s overall synergy to take center stage rather than one defining element.

Tame Impala dropped their fourth full length album, The Slow Rush earlier this year, but more recently Kevin Parker showed his skills on remix duty for 070 Shake‘s “Guilty Conscious.”
