Sleigh Bells' guitarist Derek Miller is all healed up after a skateboarding accident left him with an arm fracture, which tourmate araabMUZIK took as an opportunity to put together a congratualtory remix of their song "Never Say Die". The remix is a heavy dose of shredding guitar riffs and brash, pounding percussion, with the producer putting his MPC to work. Stream the remix below.

Along with the remix, araabMUZIK has let loose a brand new solo cut, a head rattling dubstep-infused hip-hop beat titled "Runaway Bass". Check it out below, and after the jump, you can check out dates for Sleigh Bells and araabMUZIK's current tour.

[Watch] Sleigh Bells - "Irreplaceable" (Beyonce Cover)

Last Friday I took a trip to see Sleigh Bells live at their Manchester date and even though I dig the sound they create on record it just didn't quite gel for me in a live setting. Their new album has been widely adored by fans and it's true that they have their moments. Saturday Night Live for example was pretty decent. But that said I just couldn't get into it at a large show. However, this little number they put in whilst in London seems pretty cool. They paid a visit to Zane Lowe's Radio One show and covered Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable". See what you think of their take on one of Beyoncé's biggest tracks below via The NJ Undeground.
