Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s self-titled debut is so strong that frontman Ruban Nielson could have just filled this Modular mix with album cuts and some of his favorite tunes. Would it have been lazy? Kind of. Would it have worked? Definitely. But Nielson went the extra mile here by offering up warped-as-fuck remixes of a series of indie and R&B joints. Anyone spending their Friday afternoon in a drug-induced haze will probably lose their shit to this mix. It features finely tripped-out remixes of Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy is Mine,” DOM’s “Jesus,” and Aaliyah’s “Try Again,” among others. Just make sure you don’t stare off into the sun for too long after you hit play.
