Awake represented a high-water mark for Scott Hansen, the
San Francisco musician better known as Tycho. Described by
Hansen as, “in many ways, the first True Tycho record,”
Awake announced the arrival of Tycho as a full band, and it
found Hansen streamlining the group’s sound, focusing on
the drums and aiming to capture the energy and power of
the group’s live set. The story of Awake arrives at its natural
conclusion with this 12” of remixes, on which Hansen’s songs
are re-interpreted by producers who make the songs their
own while retaining all of their core elements.
Baio, who splits his time between solo work and his role as
bassist in Vampire Weekend, gives “Plains” a kind of
soulfulness, adding a driving rhythm to the original’s beatless
ambience and dropping in snatches of vocal for texture and
warmth. RJD2 takes the swift-kicking “Apogee” and transforms it into tranquil instrumental funk; In the hands of Few
Nolder, “Montana” becomes tense and driving,
four-on-the-floor beat undergirding bright, rippling synths.
Additional remixes from Com Truise, Christopher Willits, Bibio
and Beacon, which had been previously released, have been
added to this package. Taken together, the Awake Remixes
offer a parallel narrative for Tycho’s artistic breakthrough
