At first listen, Illum Sphere’s driving remix of Chairlift’s Something single “Met Before” is jarring, to say the least. The producer has completely manipulated Caroline Polachek’s vocals for the verse portions of the track, as they are now almost robotic and nearly unrecognizable.
That changes when the tune crashes into the chorus, which slightly soars while still throbbing along with the video game-ish bass. In short, this is a true remix, as Illum Sphere’s really made it his own. You’ll find it as part of an upcoming remix series featuring the likes of Martyn, John Talabot, and the Field.
