Best remix of the day – Tom Vek’s take on Bombay Bicycle Club’s mouthful of a track “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep,” the fourth single from their 2011 record A Different Kind of Fix. Remixes of indie pop songs are always a little touch and go, but Vek more than succeeds – he doesn’t mess with the band’s irresistible Britpop sensibility and smart guitar interplay, nor with Jack Steadman’s vocals, he just clubs the whole thing up a bit with a housey, skittering backbeat and heady synth line. The end product is probably the catchiest thing you’ll hear all day and definitely one of our favorite remixes of the year so far. Put it on repeat.
