Remixtape: Vol. 2

A few weeks back James Blake told SPIN, “Remixing is like musical prostitution.” Ha — relax, James Blake. This is the column in which we beg to differ. Much in the spirit of our inaugural Remixtape this month’s collection features reworkings from both in-demand prostitutes and adept indie rock knob twiddlers. Honorable mention to Tyler, The Creator’s Lykke Li mix, which I like but didn’t the vibe here. Speaking of which Vol II gets more chill toward the end so maybe consider it as a soundtrack to your commute or if you’re having Thom Yorke over for tea.
