Mikey Perry, aka Paces, has been a busy guy. Whether he’s being named a ‘Top New Producer to Watch‘ by inthemix; receiveing national airplay love on triple j; remixing the likes of Parachute Youth, YesYou and Sampology; supporting beat-maker extraordinaire Lunice; or having his bootleg of “Angels” (The xx) receive over 20,000 plays on Soundcloud (cracking the ‘Top 20 Most Popular‘ tracks on HypeM).. He certainly shows no signs of slowing down.
Paces‘ unique sound, a moody combination of 808 drums, chopped vocal samples, synths, wonky pianos and harps could sit at home amongst any of his musical idols. Think Ta-Ku, SBTRKT, The Postal Service and Mount Kimbie. In May of this year he released his debut EP THE PACT on Kastles‘ visionary US label Symbols (their first ever Australian release), and with a host of exciting collaborations/remix projects in the works, the future for Paces is looking bright.
Paces now brings you this dope remix of Childish Gambinos’s 3005. Check it out. Cover photo by Mel Tjoeng.
