Look. I don’t have a good rebuttal for the accusation that remixes are a bit unoriginal. It’s undeniable that it takes a creative hand to make something from scratch.
So, when I saw that Gilligan Moss had remixed American Eyes, I was immediately skeptical. American Eyes is so flawless in composition and build, it’s useless to remix. Leave it alone. Let it be.
But this is Gilligan Moss. The guy who turned Glass Animals’ Gooey into a frenzied, Frankenstein creation that speeds up to a near sprint. And even though I may have been rooting against him, Gilligan Moss has done it again. This time injecting BPM’s into one of my favorite songs of 2016.
