London beatsmith Gold Panda has worked his remix magic on one of the more powerful cuts from Lykke Li’s most recent Wounded Rhymes.

His take on “Sadness Is A Blessing” adds a forthright bass to it, and customary to his m.o., makes it dance friendly yet chilled out, and as culturally enthused as songs from his debut Lucky Shiner like “Same Dream China” or “India Lately.”

Though Li’s vocals are still prominent, the rendition is very much a Gold Panda song due to the multitude of samples he uses to construct it, and the complete absence of any organic instrumentals. Check it out below:

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.
