Moudy Afifi’s Remix of The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition” Transforms the Song Into an Ambient New Wave Dance Track

Moudy Afifi’s remix of The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition” places the emphasis on its potential as a more abstract and ambient dance track. The falsetto vocals of the original take on a more processed sound here as though put through a vocoder. In basically doubling the length of the song Afifi is able to explore the tonal qualities of the song even more as he is able to slow down the pace and all but remove the organic drums and guitar and replace them with electronic elements (or a highly processed version of the original percussion) occupying the same sonic and thematic space. The effect is almost like a deep house version of an Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark song. Afifi in effect does what one would hope a remix would do with a song and basically make it anew while preserving something of the song’s core appeal.
