A few amazing remixes have come out this week. Here’s my favourites.
1. Future Islands, I’ve Been Waiting On You (Badbadnotgood Remix)
The Canadian hip-hop-jazz trio have remixed the instant classic into a soulful, down-tempo jazz crooner. It’s absolutely stunning. They’re the only group who could make such a great song even better! Listen/watch here, and get excited to see these guys live at Falls Festival:
2. Gorillaz, Feel Good Inc. (James Blake Remix)
Yep, it’s a James Blake remix – but not what you might think. A wompy, beat-mashing remix that flips the original on its head, spins it around until it falls over – in slow motion. This is the latest remix by Blake, under his moniker Harmonimix. He’s also remixed Kendrick, OutKast and Destiny’s Child under the name.
3. Daughter, Winter (Warpaint Remix)
Washed over, subtle, beat-based ambience. This is a gorgeous remix from the LA quartet, who have teamed up with the UK modern folk heroes, turning the beautiful original into something intriguing, heartily electronic, and strangely warm.
4. Snoh Aalegra, Bad Things ft. Killer Mike (Killer Mike Remix)
Snoh is a relatively new artist, Swedish-born, LA-based. The original of this track is soulful and so gorgeous, and features a guest verse from Common. This time around, Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike has given it a spin, and the results are magnificent. Enjoy!
