[Listen] AlunaGeorge Remixes Dirty Projectors' "The Socialites"
Dirty Projectors' Swing Lo Magellan highlight "The Socialites" gets the remix treatment. Today, the band released a 12" single featuring three remixes, including Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, FaltyDL and AlunaGeorge. You can now stream AlunaGeorge's sensual interpretation of the song.
The British duo take the original and give it significant tonal shift. The remix begins with soft sexuality, as echoing synths and sweeping chimes draw you into a night of romance. Things amp up quite quickly as AlunaGeorge twist the pitch of Amber Coffman's vocals and drop some bombastic distorted bass before bringing it back to a relaxed atmosphere. The remix has great breadth, but keeps it tight and enticing. Solid work. Stream it below along with the original.
