I have mixed feelings about Autograf. I know they are the ‘band du jour’ and perhaps the next Odesza. But for that very reason, for all the elements of cheesy and for the fact that they commissioned 150 remixes for their track Metaphysical, I have mostly kept my distance. But this remix, I like.
The Chicago trio’s edit of Seafret’s Wildfire is way cooler than their usual work despite being an odd pairing and take the original track to a whole new place. I love the Daft Punk meets Lindstrom and Gold Panda drops by for a minute vibe, I love the darkness they bring and the simplicity; although I wish they kept the vocals pitched down all throughout the track.
Job well done.
