Koloto’s remix of Theodore’s ‘Towards?’ is a downtempo track which is a full on treat for the ears. So many small and intricate little details can be found in the song, that it’s hard to only give it a single listen. It reminded me of music from the likes of Parra for Cuva or The Avener. It’s dramatic, beautiful and yet keeps a sense of tenderness to it that is hard to ignore.

On the Koloto remix of “Towards?”, Koloto says, “I’ve had my head (and studio) fully immersed in my own music for the last year or so, so it was great to be asked to work on this beautiful track by Theodore. I’ve a tendency to over complexify things when it comes to making music, so with this one I really wanted to exercise some restraint. The original track has some really solid melodies and progressions, so my aim was to try and create a simple percussive backdrop that would allow them to play out.”
