LightsoverLA need no introduction. If you're familiar with this blog you'll know we would willingly have their children if biology permitted us. They have another remix for the Blogosphere as a teaser for bigger things to come, this time they've gone to town on Crystal Castles' 'Vietnam'. Stormy tells me they have more official remixes and some originals on the horizon also, which is pretty freaking exciting.
For now I'll focus on this track. For my mind, it isn't as tight as their former work. Their Two Door Cinema Club and Miike Snow remixes we featured a while back could make a grown man cry with sheer joy as he is taken on a ride through Utopia. This remix though is different, and I think it's down to the Crystal Castles sound. It doesn't bode too well with LightsoverLA's style. Canada has been pumping out shitty electro since MSTRKRFT went down the toilet, and the new Crystal Castles EP 'Celestica' is no exception. It's a forerunner for their upcoming album release in June, which will be self-titled... again...
But I digress. LightsoverLA are still better than you ever will be. And they've made me enjoy some form of Canadian electro so they're definitely doing something right. They managed to whip this track up in a few hours, and then casually decided to release it. That's just how they roll.
