Since its release last October, Tame Impala’s Lonerism has been covered, remixed, and redone by artists like the Flaming Lips and the Field. Now London electro DJ Erol Alkan stretches album opener “Be Above It” to over twice its original length, taking the already techno-influenced “gotta be above it” repetition to a new level of trance-inducing, with a surge of robotic club beats nearly five minutes in. Check it out below.
Alkan’s rework of “Be Above It” will be available on limited edition, white-sleeved 12″ vinyl, with 1500 copies worldwide. Both the vinyl and digital downloads will be on sale December 6 (AUS), December 10 (UK) and December 11 (US).
