Bloc Party - Truth (Jerome Lol Remix)

I’ve been waiting a long time to share this remix by Jerome LOL of Bloc Party’s single “Truth” taken from the bands last “Four” album. As you may already know we’re big fans of LOL’s work. Hopefully one day we will have the chance of an exclusive interview. Anyway, in case you missed his brilliant take of Tomas Barfod’s “November Skies” |listen here| and his edit of  Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is equally brilliant, and you can |download it here| featured  in our chill compilation. This new work shows a different, but not that different, approach of his touch. It doesn’t mischaracterizes LOL’s touch, but it’s  definitely another “face” of his skills as producer. It’s really interesting and creative the deconstruction and reconstruction of the original. Personally I’m enjoying the changes he made, specially because he starts the remix in a completely different way of the original, driving us into three different moments around 1:27, 2:52, and 3:21. Jerome’s version is also more slow and steppy, turning this epic track into a deep and dark roller coaster of emotions. Without a doubt we’re facing one of the best remixes of 2013… so far. This work is part of a remixed package of the band’s “Truth” single, featuring more remixes by A Chal and IO Echo. The EP is already available since February 22nd,  and you can purchase your copy via itunes. I’ve also attached to this post the official video of this single, and you can watch it after the jump. Educate Your Ears!
