We’ve been enamored of Korallreven’s “Sa Sa Samoa” since we first heard it, thanks to its winter-sunrise chilly-beautiful electronic soundscape and Julianna Barwick’s shuffled and remixed vocals, so we were psyched that another one of our favorite electronic acts, Elite Gymnastics, took on a remix of the track. Their re-up is truly fascinating and totally timely – featuring a sped-up Whitney Houston sample, a brostep-style bass drop (it’s more like a high-pitched drone drop, but who’s keeping track), and plenty of delirious skittering beats. We liked the original for its calm, minimalistic ethereality, but we like this version because there’s so much going on. Check it out.
