Temper Trap Remixed...
First off... Temper Trap's Conditions is a great album. There is also a Conditions Remixed, which takes to album to a whole nother level after commissioning other artists to roll up their sleeves, get dirty and remix the orginal songs. Noteworthy is Kings of Convenience's album Versus, which did the same thing albeit nine years ago (and still incredible today)
As a starter, we'll begin with the original track to give everyone a foundation. For the indie purists out there, the original may be preferable. Its a great track but a little too slow for my alrady acclimated to crazy shiz musical brain.

Next up is the same track, this time under the helm of Rusko, who instinctually set the mood for a little sensual dance moves (I imagine Nick & Miller both working a dimly lit room full of girls with their dance moves((noteworthy is chromeo's music video for Night by Night doing exactly that - Chromeo - Night by Night)<-- highly recommended viewing))

Lastly, and what I really want to share with all of you, is the same song remixed by an artist who needs a little more love, Big City Love Affair. By not taking quite so much artistic liberty allows BCLA to really draw on what really makes the song in the first place. Preserving the intimacy, a little less production and a little more step to keep the listener interested.

Bonus: another TT track remixed by Keljet, who sucessfully captains this spaceship into a galaxy of rythmic house, groovy guitar riffz and infectious house... loving it.
