3. The Princess and the Sky Goat (Andrew Heath Remix)
For the fourth and final single from Banco de Gaia’s ‘The 9th of Nine Hearts’ album, I’ve chosen a track that exemplifies what some would describe as the archetypal Banco sound: ‘The Princess and the Sky Goat’ is ambient dub at its finest, featuring a rolling bassline courtesy of James Eller (The The) and lush saxophone from Dick Parry (Pink Floyd).
The remixes are in a similar vein, with Ornah-Mental providing a dubby worldbeat rerub and Andrew Heath a spacious pure ambient wash.
