LA based DJ and producer Tommy Trash starts the new year off on a proper note by releasing a new song as a free download. He's taken on indie artist Caribou's song "Can't Do Without You" and has given it a smooth refresh. He steps in a more melodic, soft direction than his typical high energy party starters, which fits the track perfectly. See what Tommy had to say about the remix below.
"For those of you who don't know Caribou, go check his music out immediately. He's one of my favourite producers, consistently making beautiful, emotive and intricate music. For those of you who do know him I'm sure you're loving his incredible new album Our Love as much as I am. So many great tracks on there but Can't Do Without You has been totally stuck in my since first hearing it back in June last year. My mix is an ode to the original, taking it into a different space from the original. I wanted to keep the mix fairly gentle, including a lot of the really special original elements, particularly his vocal, while giving it my personal stamp. I hope people enjoy it as much as I did making it. Go check out Caribou's album if you haven’t already."
