Listen: Tame Impala - Be Above It (Erol Alkan Rework) [Preview]

After his epic elongation of 'Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind', influential London producer, DJ and label head Erol Alkan again pulls Tame Impala apart, this time stretching at the seams and turning the acid up to eleven on 'Be Above It'.

The original already dabbles in techno-like repetition, albeit with mostly live loops, and Alkan takes this approach to its logical conclusion, adding those magic numbers 303 and 909 and in turn raising the roof to previously unfathomable jacking heights.

It's been a staple of his live sets this past summer and will finally be available to buy digitally and as a white-sleeved, one-sided 12" limited to 1500 copies worldwide on Dec 6 (AUS), Dec 10 (UK), Dec 11 (US).
