003 - Caribou (Swim Remixes)

Swim got remixed.  Although not all efforts prove satisfactory (James Holden's particularly), there are a couple of artists who have really made the most of the opportunity, achieving that fine balance between original material and novel interpretation. Noteworthy about the first two tracks below is the treatment of the vocal lines - in the original versions, neither has a prominence such as they do in the remixes. Lastly, there's just enough of Sun in the third to make it a successful remix as well as a good tune.

Caribou - Jamelia (DJ Koze Remix)

Caribou - Kali (Fuck Buttons Remix)

Caribou - Sun (Altrice's 'Only What You Gave Me' Remix)
