Transforming the big bold soul laden brush strokes of the original into a snappier, more percussion driven number this is the first remix Hot Chip have tackled in quite some time and Matt couldn't be happier about the results. Here is what he had to say:
"Although the very nature of recorded music flies in the face of this, I'm a firm believer that art is never finished, it only stops in interesting places. Fortunately, versions, dubs and remixes allow you to see a song from a new perspective, they un-stick a recorded experience from a particular moment in time and allow it to live again. Today I'm very excited to share a marvellous remix that Hot Chip has done for Big Love, one that unlocks the song and turns it inside out. It stays very honest to the original material but also breaks it open in a terrific way. Take a listen, listen to the original, hear what is changing and what's not, what's new and what's not. Hot Chip did a GREAT job, it's a pleasure to have them on the mix, and for that I send my biggest love."
