Ginger & The Ghost – One Type Of Dark (Ta Ku Remix)

Well, I’m in the spirit of summer right now regardless as to whether or not the temperature decides to remain neutral for the rest of the week. With the discovery of this song, my mind immediately goes to a warm place where there’s outdoor music and brews on hand. I’d love to know what kind of imagination and thought process went into the creation of this remix, because the biography for Ginger & The Ghost appears genuine and thought out. That is, their attention to their audience is inherent in the fact that imagination and spontaneity are taken into consideration during the song writing process. And we hope that this is the case all of the time, but it’s nice to hear artist(s) bring that to our attention.With that in mind, Ta Ku seemed to approach the earthy song with precision and sex appeal. I mean come on. You can’t doubt that this is the type of song you want to make space age babies to.

The strings are outlined with a heavy beat. If I were to draw the feeling out on paper, it would translate to the vocal samples spelled out in letters, drawn in black ink, with a neon blue highlighter colored over them. That’s how it feels in my head, with a strong underlying line of orchestral sound and rhythm that is constantly being counteracted by something beautifully fresh. The original song is a sonic and mysteriously delicate work. The voice itself is so strange and fragile, but beautiful, and makes for a great vocal sample in this remix. The strings you’ll hear in the beginning are taken from just one less noticeable part of the original, marking an excellent attention to detail from Ta Ku.

Is there just one type of dark?”

A question on darkness that lingers in the shadows of my mind, I’m left haunted and entranced after this song completes. It’s similar to the Jamie Woon remix that Hayden talked about a couple of weeks ago, where the combination of vocals and music end and leave us in a room with sound that was once bouncing off the walls. You already know you’re going to have this song on repeat, much like I have over the past couple of hours. And the best part is probably the body’s natural reaction, particularly if you’re alone. You may end up dancing the type of dance that makes you wish people could see you do all the time. It’s that body movement that you know only happens when you’re alone because it’s so uninhibited. It’s amazing but unfortunately, it only happens because you are alone. It probably won’t happen when you’re out with your homies this weekend. It’s okay, those moments are for you and they need to happen. So let this song be that moment.
