- Skee Mask does jungle.
- "Maru," a shimmering broken techno tune, was one of the brighter moments on Plaid's recent album. Enlisting Skee Mask, who also blends bright textures with scattershot drums, for a remix feels apt. But rather than making the cosmic original spacier, Skee Mask increases the pressure, swapping the percussion for a mean jungle beat that ducks and weaves between passages of calm and chaos. It's a heady workout that might remind you of early Squarepusher, the energy rising and falling as the atmosphere swells. The best moments are when most elements are stripped away, leaving the percussion to skate over the yawning synths. As always with Skee Mask, this remix is a mix of flashy production and genuine feeling, a blend almost no one else nails so well.
