Random 30 2013: HIGH HØØPS - Music Sounds Better With You

This track turned up mid-year, homegrown product for a summer’s day in the heart of a southern hemisphere winter. This is Auckland beatmaker HIGH HØØPS getting down on the arse of Stardust’s seminal ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ – a decade or so after the fact.

And it works. Cut up bits and bobs of cloudy, glitchy, lush electronica serve to highlight the solid R&B sensibility found in the original, and HIGH HØØPS somehow manages to breathe new life back into a tired old favourite. Best consumed through a quality set of headphones.
