The tribal bangs of "One" have mutated. The big hit by these New Yorkers has gone from being a precious pop song, with the psychotropic, dreamy quality that so characterises them, to being a dancefloor tune on which the details are not all that important. And it works. This remix by Teen Daze makes necessity a virtue. It sounds robust, potent and most importantly, convincing. It’s obvious he knew where Yeasayer’s track wanted to go. So from the exoticism of the original we’ve gone to the bluntness of the club. Not as cool as they like it, but effective for at least a while. Quite the opposite of the re-rub of “Madder Red” by Little Loud (already known for his remixes for Health, Au Revoir Simone and Memory Tapes among many others). Atmospheric and cosy, the version has a certain dreamy touch that takes you to other places. Two very different remixes, honouring the stylistic richness of these slightly hippyish Brooklynites.
