Caribou’s dance-ier, remix-prone project Daphni has taken on the impossible tast of making Hot Chip’s latest In Our Heads single, “Night & Day” and making it dance-floor friendlier. Snaith mostly strips the song from Alexis Taylor’s vocal track and focusses on the song’s awesome, early LCD Soundsystem-indebted groove. It’s as minimal and natural a remix as they come, not focussed on reinvention but exposing and magnifying the track’s strengths. Listen and download below:
