MGMT - "Congratulations" (Erol Alkan Remix)


London DJ and producer Erol Alkan throws a sexy, dancy edge on MGMT’s “Congratulations,” for the band’s limited edition 7” single available November 23 at select indie retailers. It’s not so much a remix as a head-to-toe reworking of the title track from the band’s second record, but it flawlessly brings out the original’s buried club potential. Starting off with a glammy electro flourish before devolving into funky minimalist bass competing for attention with Andrew VanWyngarden’s smooth falsetto, Alkan’s remix is the kind of dark, cold club music that contributes effortlessly to the world-weary quality of VanWyngarden’s lyrics while still making you just want to dance it all out.
