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