Illustrious musician Annie Clark, better known to the world as brilliant artist St. Vincent, put out one of my favorite art pop albums of 2017 in critically acclaimed Masseduction. While the record seemed to diverge from some of her gnarled guitar tracks of yore, it was a genius concept with incredible songs. Album single New York is undoubtedly a crowd favorite, a sing-along ready, melancholia steeped beauty. We love it too. And we can’t help but love this remix of the song by Los Angeles duo DJDS. I can’t imagine it’s an easy song to remix, but they’ve expertly crafted a drum & bass plus breakbeats inflected version of New York that gives the original some extra urgency and a darker aura. The official DJDJS version of New York is available at iTunes, here.
