Finally, the UK-based nervous-electro-math collab you’ve been waiting for your whole life – Hot Chip are next in line to remix Foals‘ jam-of-all-jams “My Number.” It’s one of our favorite remixes of the year so far, period: Hot Chip could probably make a Balearic-tinged fist-pumper out of anything, but Foals provided them with plenty of base material in the form of Yannis Philippakis’s killer vocal track. Layered over a maximalist, pulsating electronic backdrop that’s pure Hot Chip (and sometimes even a little LCD Soundsystem), you’ve got a remix that lives up to the catchy irresistibility of the original. Check it out.
