“White Sky” (Basement Jaxx Remix)

    Basement Jaxx got ahold of Vampire Weekend’s latest Contra single, “White Sky,” and the results are absolutely nuts. The skipping beat of the original is replaced with a more straighforward thud and the keyboards are augmented with about 100 extra parts. Ezra Koenig’s vocals are kept pretty intact, except his castrato chorus part is repeated several, several times. What was once a pleasant little ditty has now been blown up into a stadium-sized banger. Listen to the track in radio rip form below.
