This is an utterly and completely unique Arcade Fire cover from Mr. Little Jeans; the misleading stage name for Norwegian songstress Monica Birkenes. Originally the title song from Arcade Fire’s 2010 Grammy-Award winning album, ”The Suburbs” is transformed from an upbeat folksy piano-infused tune into a slow synthesized electro jam. The song is intensified even more with this filthy electro-dub remix from Crywolf. Hope you enjoy this addictive and slightly seductive cover.
The brain center behind The xx‘s composition of electronic drums and dark wave elements is accredited to their producer Jamie Smith, aka Jamie xx. Aside from remixing numerous tracks from The xx, he has also done some reworks for artists such as Florence and the Machine, Adele, and Radiohead. Jamie completely reconstructs this track from experimental singer-songwriter Glasser. The hiccuping vocals and bumping bass provide a tantalizing effect throughout the song that feeds the need to press repeat.
This song is guaranteed love at first listen. With the beautiful female vocals, brilliant percussion, and Four Tet flow, this remix demands attention.

According to their Facebook page, Ultraista was conceived from a love of afrobeat, electronica, art and inspired by tequila. Sounds just about right, enjoy.
