The track is taken from the 'Other Islands' EP, which is out tomorrow

Today's exclusive track premiere comes to you in video form, as iDJ proudly brings you the first airing of FABRIK's video of the Galaktian Remix of their track Whitestar. The track's out on their own Fabrik label tomorrow (16 May), as part of the Other Islands remix EP.

Birmingham-based four-piece FABRIK describe their sound as "encompassing elements of trip-hop, electronica, rock and psychedelia". Their debut album City Islands was released in August 2017 and saw them pick up a BBC Introducing nomination. Now, as they beaver away to complete album #2, four tracks from that first opus have been remixed by likeminded artists from around the world, including Estonia's Galaktian, the UK's Gagarin, Kansas City's Nowtro and California's No Skin.

For fans of ambient and downtempo electronic music there's much to enjoy on Other Islands, from the valium disco of 23-32 (as remixed by Nowtro), to the Dead Can Dance-like stylings of Tesseract (as remixed by No Skin) to the aural hot bath that is Gagarin's take on Return To Black Lake. But the track we're here talk about today is this remix from Galaktian of Whitestar, which sounds like something you might hear if the Tardis suddenly dropped you off at a Sunday afternoon "comedown session" in a bar circa 1997…
