Tycho gets remixed by Poolside
Tycho’s “Horizon” – a highlight from the grammy nominated LP Epoch – points towards an entirely new skyline here under the guidance of San Francisco-based daytime disco artists Poolside. They flip the original from an introspective instrumental into a cosmic boogie, complete with handclaps and a choral refrain.

“Horizon is a very dark, moody song and I was looking for a counterpoint in production for the remix. Poolside brought their signature daytime disco sound to the track and gave Horizon a much sunnier vibe. It’s a perfect summertime jam.”

“It’s tricky to approach a Tycho remix because there are no vocals. By definition a remix would typically strip away the textures and layers, which are the signatures of Tycho, and use the vocals. We kept the original melody as the fingerprints and added classic Poolside synths and percussion. This remix essentially became a Poolside B-side through the process.”
