Murdocco has officially collaborated with Fernando Lagreca to create a a powerhouse and avant garde styled remix of Murdocco’s 2021 track (featured below).
While both versions rely on that signature percussive beat, the remix takes it further outside of the box and adds an ambiance to it that, I feel, the original avoided. This creates a wonderful diversity that, on some levels, is subtle and, on others, makes both versions light years apart. You will find a favorite in one of these or, like me, find something endearing in either.
