In a few short days, Slugabed's Activia Benz label will drop The Good of the Night EP, a six-track effort from London producer Toby Gale. Included on the record is this remix from PC Music affiliate Maxo, whose rework of "3 Up" adds quite a bit of sonic activity to the track. Originally a somewhat mellow affair—one flushed with thick chords and jazzy piano—Maxo infuses "3 Up" with a bevy of twists and turns, miniature sound bites, fast-morphing melodies, and even a touch of G-funk, ultimately reshaping Gale's beat into an enjoyably unpredictable endeavor. Both Maxo's remix and the original "3 Up" will be joined by four other Toby Gale productions when the UK artist's The Good of the NightEP sees its official release on November 10.
