Caribou have their latest tune "Odessa", a piece somewhat in between shoegazing Indie and DFA-alike ElectroDisco, remixed and the result has been recently released via City Slang. The most useful and DJ-friendly rework is "David Wrench's Drumappella", a slow, stripped down to the percussive bone re-lick well fitting in between DC Recordings, Trus'me, some Edits and the still ongoing Cosmic hype - not an easy one to play but a connaisseurs choice. On the flip remixes by Junior Boys and Nite Jewel are to be found - the boys adding quite a bit of glitz whilst Nite Jewel are spending like one third of the track on a nice'n'deep intro part and progress into a sensitive piece of Indietronics that is to be played... where? Honestly this is not a club record but will appeal to fans of Caribou as all remixes are well-crafted and carefully transfer the vibe of the original version into other musical contexts.
