Lana Del Rey - "Video Games"

Two of the bigger, more divisive names from Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2011 list come together on this remix, in which London dance&B transmorpher Jamie Woon reworks “Video Games,” the luminous breakout single from music-blog flashpoint Lana Del Rey. Woon does a lot of pitch-shifting and bass-dropping without much regard for the atmosphere of the original track or, for that matter, of his own solo tracks, like the great “Night Air.” Listen below.

“Video Games” remains an awesome song; I don’t care what you guys say. And for another piece of the LDR story, go read my friend Sean Fennessey’s interview with her for GQ.
