Not satisfied with simply scoring an entire soundtrack to an old Russian film, Nicolas Jaar is back with more new music today, having just dropped an incredible remix of Florence + the Machine’s new track What Kind of Man.
Oh, and it’s twelve minutes long.
The original track only came out a couple weeks ago, sending us all into a flurry of excitement over F+TM’s forthcoming album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, out on June 1.
The original track is soars and roars atop a huge riff, trumpets and a massive chorus. But Nicolas Jaar, being Nicolas Jaar, has injected his own deep house darkness and murky jungle beats. It’s warped almost beyond recognition, but it’s SO damn good. A definite highlight are the sections that use Welch’s vocals, having warbled and muffled them into something dazzling and psychedelic.
Here’s the remix:
