Literally years in the making, The Letter EP brings the enigmatic Jimi After to Throne of Blood in top form. Building on a series of releases for like minded imprints including Days of Being Wild, Correspondant, and AstroLab, Jimi delivers a carefully assembled pair of jams paired with two exceptional (and wildly different) remixes from LA mainstay Daniel T from the Cosmic Kids and Parisian legend Crackboy.
Kicking things off is the slow-mo stepper “The Letter,” which pairs an iconic and hopeful vocal sample with an outsized bassline to create a monster afterhours groover. For his remix, Daniel T takes “TheLetter” poolside in LosAngeles, brightening things with joyous afro-tinged organs and tambourines sure to set late Summer daytime jams a flame.
Reknowned for his offkilter take on dancemusic, Crackboy drags “The Letter” deep into warehouse techno territory, scrapping the warmth of the original, upping the tempo and delivering a brilliantly distorted dancefloor firestarter.
“WildBilly” rounds out the EP with its widescreen take on robodisco, equal parts sex and menace sure to set the vibe right.
