Speaking on their new remix, Squid say, “We were fired up when Darkstar asked if we wanted to do a remix of their track, our tour had been cancelled and we’d just gone into lockdown so the idea of playing around with stems all day inside felt like the best use of time. The five of us had gone from being together to being suddenly spread out around the UK so we devised a way to send these ideas around and pass them on, kind of like a game of consequences. The result was a collage made using any instruments and tools that we each had available to us.”
The original version of ‘Text’ originally appeared on Darkstar’s latest album ‘Civic Jams’.
