M83 – “Run Into Flowers (Maps Remix)”

Mute is getting ready to reissue the first three M83 albums, which have also produced for us some interesting rarities and remixes. First there was that unreleased music video, and now label mate Maps has taken on one of the first truly iconic M83 songs, “Run Into The Flowers.” The original blended electronic music, chiptune, post rock, and shoegaze in a way that still sounds ahead of its time. The Maps version adds in some different dynamic shifts, and plays around with the general structure, but when the source material is already this good it’s hard to make something that isn’t supremely enjoyable. Listen to it below, and also check out Maps’ recent remix of another Mute artist, Zola Jesus’ “Dangerous Days.”
