When we came across Erol Alkan’s rework of MGMT – we knew had something special. Alkan, who is a world renown DJ, is also known for his club in London, Trash. When he’s not the resident DJ there, he’s been known to throw down some unique remixes of some of the best indietronica bands out there. From Hot Chip to Bloc Party, the list of indie-pedigree is long and impressive.

This rework of MGMT’s track, Congratulations, is very well done. Alkan was able to take a somewhat drab song, and give a nice poppy electro beat to it. Without taking away from Andrew VanWyngarden’s meaningful lyrics, this re-work keeps the song’s artistic integrity, but adds an upbeat style to it. It’s a great track to start the night off with before you’re heading out, or in the car ride home, when you’re winding down from your crazy night out.
