mp3: Phoenix – “Trying to be Cool” (RAC Remix)

Phoenix are taking no prisoners remixing the singles from their new record Bankrupt! – we’d be surprised if, by the end of this year, they’ve spared any of the record’s songs the re-up treatment. We’ve heard about twenty updates on first single “Entertainment,” so cue RAC’s Andre Allen Anjos to release this dancefloor-ready remix of “Trying to be Cool” – he doesn’t touch the song’s naturally bubbly euro-pop vibe but amps up the bass and Balearic flourishes into something not too far removed from an Ibiza club vibe. Check it out.

Now you can remix Phoenix too!
