Tom Skinner is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who, last year, joined Matthew Herbert‘s in-house band for the adventurous One Pig Project. Here, the newly appointed head of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop returns the favour by offering up a re-rub of “Aquarium”, a dubbed out cut from Skinner’s debut album as Hello Skinny. In Herbert’s hands the track becomes a malevolent beast that grinds forward on a rusted axle, churning up junkyard snare cracks and sparks of synth. You can download the track, exclusively via EB.net, below.
