Gesaffelstein remixes Phoenix's Bankrupt!

Phoenix's Bankrupt album was one of the best French rock releases of last year, and since the initial release
a number of fascinating remixes of tracks have surfaced.

My personal favourite so far has to be the version of Entertainment by Dinosaur Jr, but the likes of Ariel Pink and R Kelly have all had a hand in re-fashioning tracks from the album.

And so to a new version of the title track by French producer Gesaffelstein.

Gesaffelstein's Aleph collection featured on this blog last year, and he was one of the team involved in Kanye West's Yeezus album. He's also worked with the likes of Lana Del Rey.

Gesaffelstein's own material certainly deserves attention in its own right, with tracks like Pursuit setting, to these ears at least, a pretty high standard for modern electronica.

Meanwhile, his version of the title track of the last Phoenix album takes elements of what made both his work and Phoenix's work great, and creates something very interesting indeed.
