Joe Turner has remixed Editors’ ‘Black Gold’, the title track from their new best of album. Platinum selling and Mercury Prize shortlisted UK band Editors celebrated their 15-year career to date with a best of album last month. 'Black Gold' showcases an eclectic range of hits taken from six studio albums, including three new records, alongside a European and UK Greatest Hits tour in early 2020.
Joe Turner is the first of three artists to remix 'Black Gold'. The start of 2019 saw South London-based musician Joe self-release a debut single entitled 'Atmosphere' that captured the support of BBC Radio DJs including Radio 1’s Phil Taggart.
Radio 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova then went on and signed Joe’s single 'Retina/Stay' to her imprint Future Bounce, garnering BBC Radio support from the likes of Annie Mac and Lauren Laverne.
The remix takes a journey with lead singer Tom Smith’s vocals being washed with reverb and stereo effects, curating a subtle melodic sound. Turner then layers piano riffs, cymbals, drum programming, guitar samples and an organic bassline into the mix, turning the indie track into an emotive house cut.
It’s out now on Play It Again Sam.
