Artist: MGMT – remixed by Erol Alkan
Album: Congratulations Remixes EP
Today’s song is a remix of the title track off of MGMT’s second LP, but remixed by Erol Alkan, and can be found on the Congratulations Remixes EP. It’s great because it pretty much leaves the lyrics alone, they flow at the tempo and order of the original track. But then the background sounds are obviously altered, both with music taken from the original track and some that are novel for the song. The bass line leads the way, and is pretty wonderfully catchy. Both fans who liked the original song, and those who didn’t like it and prefer their more dance-friendly material, will enjoy this version. You gotta love when people remix a great song and still do it justice, but in an interesting manner.
