Squid shared the following statement about the remix:
They say limitation is a source of inspiration. Who are they? I don’t know! But they… are right! This remix was made after many failed attempts. After these failures we went back to basics with a pedal-board, two synths and the vocal stems to create this take on the original tune inspired by our favourite electronic minimalist composers.
Remixes are a fun way for us to zoom in on our inspirations, let loose with DIY living room table setups and pretend that we are proficient music producers. A Squid remix wouldn’t be a Squid remix without sounding nothing like Squid, right? Thanks to Falle Nioke and Ghost Culture for making such a fun track to play with. We hope you enjoy the ride.
‘Leywoke’ appears on Falle Nioke and Ghost Culture’s new Badiare EP. “I was inspired just by watching men and women in the street, in particular an interaction between a strong woman rejecting an approach from a bold man,” Nioke explained in a press release. “‘How can this man have the audacity to talk to me?!” she says and asks him questions like ‘and you are the son of who?!'”
