It’s not often that a remix of Bon Iver crops up, though we have shared a small handful of them over the years. Justin Vernon’s music can’t be easy to re-imagine, but if anyone can do it flawlessly, it’s Barclay Crenshaw, whom most people would more easily recognize under the name Claude VonStroke, the esteemed founder of Dirtybird Records who was voted #1 DJ in the world not too long ago. The producer has given Bon Iver’s  “715 – CRΣΣKS”, one of my favorites from their last album “22, A Million”, a truly transcendental re-work. Soft high hat rolls graze the surface of the beautifully drifting electronic edit, creating an austerely mesmeric effect next to Justin Vernon’s vocoder treated vocals. Barclay Crenshaw’s remix is a mellow and ambient masterpiece, both soothingly hypnotic and pensively haunting. This brilliant “Barclay Crenshaw White Label Renegade Cut” is available via Bandcamp, here.
