Diplo Remixes Sleigh Bells

Sleigh-Bells-Demons

“Demons,” the best song of off Sleigh Bells less immediate, but still captivating sophomore LP, Reign of Terror, has been remixed by former tourmate and Producer of the Year (in our book), Diplo. His remix strips the song from the crunchy, explosive riffs Sleigh Bells have made a career out of, and replaces them with tightly wound blips and bloops that eventually rain down on you after a blizzard of multitracked 808s and a very catchy planar synth hook have had their turn with you. Diplo has made a bit of a mess here, but it’s the best kind.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
