“Angels” (Sköllo Remix)

    Philly producer Drew Stanley (who goes by Sköllo around these parts) has tossed his work into the ever-expanding arena of great xx remixes. Here, he muddies up delicate crooner “Angels” with some dubby grunts and dance hall whistles, turning the sparse, melancholic piece into a dense and wiry stomper. Romy’s soft vocals do nicely tangled up in this thorny undergrowth; stream and download the remix for free below.

    The xx’s sophomore record Coexist will be out next week on Young Turks.
