Beck “Gamma Ray {Pocket Mix}”

 In Remix

When I left Portland for Los Angeles after just a year and a few months, I wanted to celebrate by releasing a Pocket Mix of a uniquely “LA” style musician – naturally, I chose Beck. This remix also works in backing vocals from a Jay Reatard cover of the same song.

stereogum said “This time Pocket digs into “Gamma Ray,” again interjecting laptop lacing, and satisfying the e-duet quotient by pulling in a chorus vocal from the Jay Reatard cover which appears on the official single.”

pitchfork said  “Pocket has dressed up “Gamma Ray” in the garb of another nuke-obsessed decade and trades some guitar for a melange of gooey, romantic synths…”

new york magazine said “Pocket mashes up Beck’s original with a cover version by his rock-moppet successor, Jay Reatard. With pleasant results”

and some love from pasta primavera, la blog du baron, prefix mag and a bit more at hype machine.
