Some remixes February 12, 2010

Here are four killer remixes that I’ve been pretty much obsessed with as of late, in the order in which I discovered them:

Charlotte Gainsbourg – “Heaven Can Wait (Nosaj Thing Remix)”

Nosaj Thing is known for his sparse yet intricately detailed arrangements of electronic clicks, beeps, and whirs, and they sound especially good when backing the already excellent duet between Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck. download mp3

The xx – “Islands (Delorean Remix)”

I’m a sucker for remixes by Delorean, as you can tell from my year-end track list for 2009. I’m also a sucker for remixes of the xx since their originals are so devoid of instrumental backdrop. Basically, this track was a match made in heaven. download mp3

Small Black – “Despicable Dogs (Washed Out Remix)”

I had the original “Despicable Dogs” on repeat for quite awhile toward the end of last year, so it was a very pleasant surprise when I discovered that Washed Out’s remix might be even better. download mp3

Bon Iver – “Re: Stacks (Tomas Barford Remix)”

An extended, dubby house mix of Bon Iver? I was worried that this might be a bit much, but Barford’s gentle loops only serve to accentuate the best parts of Justin Vernon’s voice and song. download mp3
