PREVIEW THE DJ: Streetlab’s MySpace
LISTEN: “Sleepyhead” by Passion Pit (Streetlab Mix)
I totally feel you. Why would I want to hear “Sleepyhead” again, let alone another remix of it? If this song were bacon, it’d be cold ash blowing in the wind by now, but this “Sleepyhead” remix is accented in the better places this time around. Just by enhancing the bass, and adding a few high-pitched sound effects, the song isn’t contorted into something its not–it’s revamped into the same song with a little extra gas. It’s refreshing to hear good remixes of songs that get re-hashed like crazy. But please, for God’s sake, enough with the Passion Pit mixes, at least until their next album!
