Live Review: LISTEN: Disclosure 'You & Me' (Pat Lok Remix)

23 September 2013 | 10:38 pm | Antigone Anagnostellis

Pat Lok is a Canadian quiet achiever, following a string of awesome producers (like Kaytranada & Ryan Hemsworth) who have come out of the region recently.

We’ve seen some great producers coming out of Canada over the past year or so, including Ryan Hemsworth and Kaytranada. PAT LOK is another quiet achiever from the land of maple syrup and mooses.

Lok has previously worked on remixes for AlunaGeorge and Cashmere Cat and this one for Disclosure’s ‘You & Me’ smooths out the original with disco undertones and a house clap beat. He has chopped up the lyrics to mark the rhythm so the remix just misses the climax of the original “so please don’t let me.”

Nevertheless, it’s made for dancing - and is something completely different from the theatrics of the earlier Flume remix. The work is understated, playing on the subtleties of the funky interludes that Lok adds in while extending the song to an indulgent six minutes (in a good way).

Here’s what he had to say about his remix:

“So I’ve had these vocals stuck in my head since hearing Baauer play his version at Sasquatch (it was massive). Unfortunately trap doesn’t get into my DJ sets unless I’m really out of my tree, so I took a shot at doing a version for all the house/disco/techno jockeys.”
