Remix Sunday: Crystal Castles
Crystal Castles is two kids from Toronto named Ethan and Alice who make their own music and have also created dope remixes of Bloc Party, Klaxons, Uffie, GoodBooks and Liars tracks, among others. All those remixes are great and everything, but this Sunday we have a real treat for you. The Castles take HEALTH's shrill, droning and percussion-heavy track 'Crimewave' and restructure it with a shuffling bouncy beat and their trademark 8-bit electro effects while retaining the vocal sample (albeit chopped and glitchy). Pre-order their upcoming Untrust Us EP from S.L.U. Records now and they'll throw in a bunch of free stuff. Better hurry though, it's selling like hotcakes.
