Sia – “Clap Your Hands (Diplo Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

There was a regrettable lack of constant, persistent hand-clapping in Sia’s “Clap Your Hands,” the second single from the Australian singer’s upcoming We Are Born. In his remix, Diplo focuses on hand-claps, and adds some “Pon De Floor“-esque pitch-shifting. It takes it in a seedy direction, especially compared to the fun-house-party feel of the original.
