Crystal Fighters – You & I (Gigamesh Remix)

Crystal Fighters
You & I (Gigamesh remix)

 Few DJ’s and producers are fixed with that coveted “dance-floor tastemaker” tag more so than Minneapolis native Gigamesh, and with such an eclectic range of original compositions and impeccable choices in remixing, it is pretty clear as to why. Recently, the electronic trendsetter wrapped up an impressive worldwide tour with stops in Asia, australia and the U.K., and it didn’t take long to flex his production muscles once more.  His latest track, a remix of Spanish folktronica trio Crystal Fighters‘ “You & I” is carried into a Nu-Disco frenzy by a very Night Rider-esque synthesizer, exaggerated percussion and a four-to-the-floor heartbeat. The bait to our ears on this one comes at about the 3:00 minute mark, as Gigamesh boldy breaks the track down to a near screeching halt before launching back into more danceable instrumentation. A little deviation from the rules on a club track always puts a smile on the face of this Ninja. Crystal Fighters have been large proponents of the remix treatment, even going as far as to release a complete remix album to go along with their last LP Star of Love, and Gigamesh has done them justice again painting his patented sound onto theirs.

[New] Gigamesh remixes Grouplove’s “Tongue Tied” + Free Download

One third of Senor Stereo, Gigamesh has a penchant for delivering quality remixes of popular songs. His latest release is a new take on Grouplove’s “Tongue Tied”.

Gigamesh manages to keep the heart of the original track beating through a meaty, percussive, kick drum right from the start. The synth textures swirl and wave overhead while paving the way for Grouplove’s incredibly catchy gang vocal lines to come in. Once the parts all work in harmony at about the thirty second mark the song really begins to come to life and hits you with a wave of sound so big that when the track is over the silence just feels awkward.

To me the guitars on “Tongue Tied” have always felt like they should be the background music at a water park, and the fun move-your-body feeling is only amplified by Gigamesh’s new grooves. This track is guaranteed to occupy your playlist for a while.

Gigamesh is hosting the track for free download on his soundcloud page.
