Portugal. The Man
Modern Jesus (Charli XCX Remix)

Alaskan alternative band Portugal. The Man released one of the strongest projects of the 2013 with Evil Friends and have continued to keep their fans engaged while on tour with some pretty unique remixes from the likes of Alt-J, Danny Brown and Mike D of the Beastie Boys. The latest re-work, posted to the band’s YouTube page this morning,  may be the best yet as the U.K.’s Charli XCX transforms PTM’s “Modern Jesus” into a minimal, airy electronic masterpiece.With drums that could easily originate from a rap instrumental, the verses gain a certain groove and smoothness working to compliment their content. Meanwhile, there is a distinct progression that culminates in a stellar closing to the song. Peep above or check out the video, which features a sketch being made over a picture of Charli, below.

[Synthpop] Charli XCX – What I Like (Remix) (Feat. Danny Brown)

Charli XCX
What I Like (Remix) ft. Danny Brown

In honor of the release of her new album, True Romance, today in the UK, Charli XCX decided to unleash the remix to her standout track, “What I Like” featuring Danny Brown. Charming and aggressive are two words that usually come to mind when describing Charli XCX’s music, and coincidentally enough, those words could also be applied to the eccentric Danny Brown as well. Danny’s proven over the past few weeks, that he’s not afraid to hop on just about anything, as he’s gone on a promotional tear in anticipation of his new album, Old. While “What I Like” was already an infectious pop tune, the inclusion of Danny Brown this time around really adds some new dimensions to the track, making it a must listen for fans of both artists. Make sure to grab a copy of True Romance when it hits our shores tomorrow.
