Listen: Sim Hutchins - Tie Me To A Rocket (Elysia Crampton's Absolut Erasure Remix)

As UK audio-visual artist Sim Hutchins (previously of Ecology Tapes) releases his No Pain In Pop debut, ‘I Enjoy to Sweep A Room’, he’s enlisted Virginia-based producer Elysia Crampton for a heady remix of Tie Me To A Rocket (And Point Me at The Ground). Tying in with the political themes of Hutchins’ enigmatic album, Crampton fits her own narrative within the track via the eclectic sound palette that traversed her unique album 'American Drift'. Through Latin-inspired rhythms, mixed vocal samples, and MIDI instruments, her powerful remix ends with a recital of names of transwomen murdered in the US this year.
