Apache Beat – Tracing Sky (Tezeo remix)

Quick-stepping rework of returning New York band packs a tender power.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Tension and contrast are everything in music. We need the hinges they create to catch our hearts, to hang emotions from. Take Brooklyn duo Tezeo’s remix of Apache Beat’s new single Tracing Sky, the NYC band’s first release after a too-long hiatus. It’s the push-pull between Tezeo’s skittering footwork-influenced rhythms and Apache Beat singer Ilirjana Alushaj’s calls into the spaces between that gives this excellent remix it’s tender power.
