St. Vincent – “Digital Witness (Darkside Remix)”

Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, as Darkside, have released a tremendous remix of St. Vincent's "Digital Witness." What once was a sproingy art-funk excursion has been repurposed as a futuristic dance track, with Clark's vocal pitch-shifted into ghostly molasses and the original rhythm switched out for a gnarly pulsating undercurrent.
