Caribou has shared an album containing 12 remixes of his 2020 album Suddenly.
The producer—real name Dan Snaith—teased the full release by sharing four remixes from Shanti Celeste, Logic1000, Kareem Ali and India Jordan in October last year. Suddenly Remixes stars a formidable line-up of Caribou’s colleagues in electronic music, including Four Tet, Morgan Geist, Floating Points and Jessy Lanza. Toro Y Moi’s standout rework of “Home” was one of the few tracks not shared in the lead up to the LP’s release.
“Chaz [Toro Y Moi] is an incredible musician fluent in seemingly every musical vocabulary but with a sensibility all his own,” Snaith gushed in a statement. “His remix is like an Alexander Calder mobile or a Kandinsky painting where the musical geometries of the original song circle each other in space.”
The release closely follows the first anniversary of Suddenly, which arrived in February 2020. Snaith reflected on the year that followed its release, sharing on Instagram that the album was about “about remaining optimistic in the face of sudden, life altering changes—moments when your world changes in an instant.”
Snaith added, “I had no idea what was coming and how relevant those ideas would soon be to everyone and everything. In some ways it’s hard to believe that a year has passed since then.
“It has been deeply moving to get messages from those of you for whom this album has had some tiny part in helping you maintain equanimity. We are not there yet but I’m also glad that this anniversary comes as the first hopeful signs are starting to show and that we may all be together again before too long.”
