One of my favourite tracks of late, Justice's 'D.A.N.C.E', has been remixed by one of my favourite knob-twiddlers, MSTRKRFT. Unsurprisingly, the results are quite good. The track begins with the familiar catchy schoolchildren sample in almost original form, but MSTRKRFT apply their patented remix process by speeding the BPMs up just a smidge, chopping up the vocal samples, and adding even more French electro guitar and synth noodling. It all builds up to a head that predictably (but satisfyingly) culminates with a breakdown two thirds of the way through, but even at almost 5 minutes this one seems to end a little too soon.
