Pete Rock + Yo La Tengo = Here To Fall (Pete Rock Remix)

    Interesting. Pete Rock remixing Yo La Tengo. “Here To Fall,” from the band’s most recent record Popular Songs, is the track in question. And the new version is… a remix. There are some spacey tones. There is a verse from the Soul Brother. And there’s even snippets of “Fly Like An Eagle.” And it sounds nothing like the original. Stream or d/l a low-quality version via Matador, or buy a hi-q version from iTunes.


    What’s the occasion? A new remix EP, of course. In the past, the Jersey boys and girl have employed indie or minimal-minded artists to do the honors: e.g., Tortoise, µ-Ziq, Nobukazu Takemura, et. al. This time around, they’ve hired hip-hop’s finest backpackers: De la Soul, RJD2 and the Chocolate Boy Wonder. Cop the Here To Fall Remixes EP in 12″ or CD format on June 8 (preorder is available also via Matador).
