Globally revered electronic musician, Felix Laband, has remixed Yndian Mynah’s “RAOK”, giving thrilling new shape to the Cape Town band’s late 2020 single.
On a track that illuminates the transformative power of random acts of kindness, Laband magnifies the cinematic textures threaded through the original with an opening soundscape that recalls the industrial atmosphere of Joy Division’s “Insight” before heading into a shimmering, bruising, tender techno landscape.
“We really loved the industrial techno feel and energy that Felix captured, while still keeping his signature sounds,” says the band. “We imagine this remix going down super well in a dingy nightclub in Berlin around 4 am.” – Yndian Mynah.
Laband’s remix also captures the emotional heart of “RAOK”, amplifying the song’s intention to reveal how kindness creates connectedness and belonging through the beauty that the producer and artist place at the centre of his creative output.
Having Laband remix ‘RAOK’ is a career milestone for Yndian Mynah.
“Growing up as teenagers in the early 00s, Felix Laband played a big role in the introduction and crossover of listening to electro music,” says the band. “It’s definitely a career milestone to have worked with such an incredible producer and artist who heard potential in the original track. That alone was very special.” – James Acker, Yndian Mynah
“RAOK” is the most recent single from the Cape Town-based four-piece, following the release of “Designasaurs” in September 2020.
