Maybe Blood Diamonds’ remix of Hundred Waters’ “Boreal” serves as a gesture of goodwill to his new cohorts on Skrillex’s label OWSLA – the Florida band’s complex, beautifully weird electro-folk music doesn’t immediately seem like an obvious source of remix inspiration for Blood Diamonds, whose music is, for lack of a better word, insane. This re-edit works in the end, though – Blood Diamonds frankensteins the band’s pretty, ethereal textures into some skittering beats, hypeman “Hey!”s, and plenty of rearrangement and shuffling, and the end product is an interesting, catchy listen you only can’t dance to because we don’t think humans can move their bodies that way. Hundred Waters will release this and other remixes on a new EP for “Boreal,” out March 26.

Hundred Waters is on tour with Alt-J and pretty soon, the xx:
