Haskins says, “the melody which became “Reliving the Past” was conceived the night before my grandfather’s funeral while we stayed at my grandparents’ house in West Virginia. The quasi-march rhythmic underpinning represents the (then) present moment whilst I stayed at the house awaiting the funeral—somber, reflective. In contrast to this, I fondly remember first seeing the music video for Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time” while my family watched TV together in my grandparents’ living room during one holiday trip when we had visited long ago. Flashing back to these warm, familial vibes I experienced in that memory and others like it is represented by the danceable backbeat section. Vacillating between the two contrasting grooves throughout serves to create a “flashback” vibe (between the present, and distant memories), and the title alludes to this function (as well as obliquely referencing the title of the Jackson song).”
these minimalistic drums (and yet super creative and full of polyrythms) combined with catchy basslines and Idris Rahman's extraordinary play make this ep just unique and perfect - highly recommended StrangeFlow
