Kanye West – “Lost In This World (Tiësto Remix)”
More than a year ago, the Dutch big-room dance DJ Tiësto remixed Kanye West’s “Lost In The World,” the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy closing track that prominently samples Bon Iver’s “Woods.” The song has apparently been sitting around Tiësto’s hard drive for the past year, and he just now got the all-clear to play it on his podcast. It’s seven minutes of ridiculously over-the-top thumpage, and it has the interesting consequence of transforming Justin Vernon’s solo Auto-Tune experiment into total Electric Zoo fare. Listen to a radio rip (or, I guess, podcast rip) of it below.
We are all now lost in the world.
