In this remix of "Trembling Hands," Australian indie rockers The Temper Trap get a reworking from their European tour mate Chet Faker. Steering clear of his hardware instruments in the studio, Faker kept his focus on synth melodies to flesh out the remix. Already happy with the drum tracking from The Temper Trap's recent The Temper Trap album, Faker worked with the rhythms as a skeleton for the track.
"I feel like people aren't completely used to the idea of a musician/producer yet. I try and use a different process and aim for a different sound for a remix than I would for an original," says Faker. "The biggest change I made was shifting the key of the song, which made some notes from the original parts sound 'out.' This took a lot of tweaking, but as a result gave the vocals a digitized sound that I ended up using."
Chet Faker's recent EP, Thinking in Textures, is out now. His remix of "Trembling Hands" is available for download here.
