Jono Ma has remixed the latest Temples single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ which Thump have premiered:
Australian producer Jono Ma, of Future Classic-affiliated band Jagwar Ma, today shared his “Even Stranger Version” of English psychedelic band Temples’ recent single “Strange Or Be Forgotten.” The track is organized as an extended groove, alive with hums and clangs growing across its surface like mold spores. After it builds to a chaotic fever pitch, the mist eventually clears away for a blissed-out two-chord progression in accompaniment with Temples’ original song’s chorus.
In an enigmatic statement over email, Ma gave some mythical background on the dance-floor bomb.
“For centuries the Temple of Panthera Onca has been a source of moral guidance, growth and exploration offering charity, protection and Shelter to those in need of repentance, salvation and salivation,” he wrote. “This most recent of messages from the Modern Temple of Jaguar preaches patience, abstinence of a kind, and the desire to embrace the strange and the even stranger.”
Temples new album ‘Volcano’ is out on March 3rd.
