School of Seven Bells - My Cabal (Robin Guthrie remix)

It’s fair to say that Robin Guthrie has something of a midas touch when it comes to music production. His celebrated career with the Cocteau Twins led to eight hugely influential albums and a string of successful collaborations, perhaps most notably with This Mortal Coil.

Now best known for his solo work, Guthrie has also forged a credible path as a remixer, working with the likes of Ulrich Schnauss & Definition of Sound.

One such project, which really caught my ear, was his 2006 reworking of the School of Seven Bells single My Cabal. In pushing out the pulsing chorus, Guthrie gave what was already a strong record a new-found depth of sound. The result was a glorious, anthemic slice of dream pop. There's no video this time, just audio, so you'll have to entertain yourself on Facebook whilst it plays...
