Cautious Clay — Cold War (Nick AM Remix)
Over the past year, New York–based producer Nick AM has been dropping a slew of remixes, edits and originals, quietly finding his voice and quickly making a name for himself (see: his collaborative edit of Electric Relaxation, for instance). This week's addition to that repertoire, a spectral remix of fellow rising talent Cautious Clay's Cold War, might just be his best work yet. The original has received heaps of attention since it's release at the start of October, and for good reason, Clay's vocal work and vision will stop you in your tracks. For his part, Nick AM has done a masterful job at retaining that stunning structure while putting his own spin on things. Subtle yet effective house grooves and clever breaks have us swept up in a phantasmal current the whole way through. Keep and ear on both these guys, and put this one in your back pocket for the weekend.
