Ghostpoet, the Brownswood artist who has just been nominated for a Mercury prize is getting ready to drop his next single, and it’s backed up by some fine remixes. ‘Liiines’ is a shuffling introspective brit-hop jam with spacious live drums, surf guitars that rise and fall like the ocean and Ghostpoet’s distinctive lyrical flow. Manchester’s man of the moment xxxy turns into two club interpretations of the track, syncing the beat and squeezing some oopph into the drums for a dub and vocal mixes. However Lando Kal – one half of Lazer Sword – uses his remix as an opportunity to sneak in the back way and blow everything out of the water with a remix that removes most traces of the original. Instead he presents a mechanical mutant of funky and house that comes with a 360 degree rotating head that spits bass flavored attitude in all directions. Heavy.
