RMX Roundup: Olympic Ayres / Foals vs Booka Shade / Sky Ferreira + Cid Rim

Sky Ferrieira Performs At Scala

For today’s installment of Remix Roundup, we have three completely different but individually stellar tracks in their own right. First off is Sydney duo Olympic Ayres, who dropped the upbeat electro-gem “Take Flight” a few weeks back. While not actually a remix, this electronic original will have you taking flight in no time, and is due out on their forthcoming EP Leisureplex later this year. Next up is the sexy mashup of Foals “My Number” over Booka Shade’s “Charlotte,” by fellow Australian artist RÜFÜS. Grab the free download here, and catch them at U Street Music Hall March 27 if you’re in DC. Last but not least is the latest from Austrian producer Cid Rim, an electric remix of Sky Ferreira’s “You’re Not The One” replete with arpeggios, shiny vocals over a choppy chorus, and a punchy bass line — the stuff good remixes are made of. Stream all three below.

CHVRCHES – Recover (Cid Rim Remix)



CHVRCHES or ‘churches’ (in case you didn’t do the trendy indie moniker math) is a new electropop outfit out of Glasgow. From their Recover EP released this month, Austrian producer Cid Rim (aka Clemens Bacher) takes the peppy single and transforms it into something a little more interesting, of the indie noir variety.

The trio toured with Passion Pit last year, are hitting up SXSW (natch) and are slotted to play at the Firefly festival in Dover this June (amazing lineup btw). They’re also playing a couple of sets at Mercury Lounge in NY next month so if you live there and have the ability to score tickets to the sold out shows, do so.

And if I recover, will you be my comfort? 
or it can be over, and we can just leave it here.
