||1.||"Just Friends" (Julia Holter remix)|
||2.||"Just Friends" (Shlohmo remix)|
Avalanche are none other than the talented Nicolas Jaar and Sasha Spielberg, who have decided to embark on a new project spanning downtempo, modern classical and ambient all wrapped up in a gorgeous shade of house. "Just Friends" is a mesmerising, slow-tempo excursion across crackling beats and mild atmospherics with a folky edge. There's two fine remixers on the go, with Rvng International's Julia Holter delivering a more cinematic beatless version, and Henry Laufer aka Shlohmo going for a broken, future bass kinda vibe on his re-interpretation of the tune. A wonderfully enchanting twenty minutes of electronic psychedelia.
