BLOODY BEETROOTS + IAMXL

Like the post below, this from THE BLOODY BEETROOTS and DIM MAK makes me want to dance my face off. Remixed by Vancouver’s IAMXL.

JOY DIVISION + IAMXL

It’s hard to imagine how influential JOY DIVISION became, especially since the band was only around a couple of years and released two long players. Their debut album Unknown Pleasures was released on Tony Wilson’s seminal label, Factory Records. While the band wasn’t necessarily punk, they were highly influenced by the movement in the late 1970s.

Here though, is a remix from IAMXL. While it’s difficult to imagine any of the band’s songs remixed, this particular recontextualization captures the dichotomy of vacant and endless emotion of the original. The bubbly bassline retains hopelessness and despair with the help of vast echoes and a feeling of great uncertainty.

This is one of my favourite songs ever.
