Eomac starkly reimagines Safe Barracks' 'Who Forgets Is Who Regrets' - you can listen and download below

Ian McDonnell, best known for both his work as one half of Lakker and as psych-techno producer Eomac, has recently remixed London band Safe Barracks' debut single 'Who Forgets Is Who Regrets', which is out now via Save Paris. Eomac's remix - available to listen and download via the Soundcloud link above - turns the off-kilter tonality of the original track into something with a fractured rhythmic approach, creating palpitation-inducing intensity.

Though the piece doesn't share the same romanticism of his latest record Spectre, this is a further indication that Eomac is providing McDonnell the platform to - in his own words in a recent interview with the Quietus - "just do whatever I feel". You can also watch the striking original video for the Safe Barracks version of 'Who Forgets Is Who Regrets' below.
