Sleigh Bells – “Young Legends (Jam City Mix)”
Here’s an interesting combination. Sleigh Bells, at this point, are in full pop-star mode (hell, they had Danny Brown open for them) and yet they’ve chosen the giddily experimental and disorienting Jam City to remix their track “Young Legends.” One of best production teams on the often visionary Night Slugs roster (who are doing wonders with Kelela right now), Jam City hit a peak with the incredible 2012 album Classical Curves, which chewed up and spat out so many of the tropes of house, techno and bass music. And in keeping with that, Sleigh Bells offer up their track to be completely broken apart and rebuilt into an unpredictable banger that belongs in some kind of intergalactic strip club. The track appears on Jam City’s recent Earthly II mix, you can hear both below.
