Animal Collective Remix Ratatat
Ladies and gents, you may not know it just yet, but a script has just been flipped. You see, Animal Collective have been remixed plenty, but they themselves have never remixed anybody under their, er, collective title.
Pitchfork, May 5, '08
We have been waiting for this remix now for just over eight months. I've mentioned it on the blog, in conversation and the question of 'where is Deakin?' has been just as haunting. As you can see, Animal Collective remixed Ratatat's "Mirando" a while back, but what's really up is that the duties were held down by Deakin - hence, what he has been doing while his bros were getting down on MPP. The remix, as you will hear from every other blog, is a nearly ten minute experimental dance epic. Complete with a sense of distance, texture and time this not only complements the release of MPP but is a friendly reminder of how stunning LP3 is. Undoubtedly one of the most angelic remixes that I've ever heard, Deakin has not only raised the bar for '09, but has definitely created a new genre for the popular remix; he has amplified a future sans mashup or banger, one that Pantha du Prince has spent a career fine tuning. Congrats Josh, you're amazing.
Mediafire is temporarily down for maintenance, so the MP3 is courtesy of Gorilla vs Bear. I'll upload ours when MF is up.
Ratatat - Mirando (Animal Collective Remix)
The 12" version will be released soon on XL. I can not even begin to describe how awesome this will sound on vinyl, I heard LP3 on vinyl for the first time this weekend and my mind has been blown. Order it here.
