Free Music Monday: Phoenix "Entertainment (Dirty Projectors Remix)"

By April 29, 2013

Follow me on:

Artist: Phoenix
Track: "Entertainment (Dirty Projectors Remix)"
Label: Glassnote
Released: Freely, madly, deeply

After Phoenix's "Entertainment" got Sugababed by Blood Orange and grunge-country'd by Dinosuar Jr, now it's time for Dirty Projectors to come to the remix party.

And Dave Longstreth, assumedly, recuts "Entertainment" in a series of truncated snippets and artfully-accelerated samples so that it progresses with a sense of manic energy.

The champagne fizz and synthy bubbles of the original mask an obvious sadness —Bankrupt! an album made with a fame hangover— but here they're amped up even further, into a frenetic-feeling pop-song exploring the accelerating power of an edit.
