SOFI TUKKER’s wildly infectious Best Friend, the Grammy nominated duo’s collaboration with The Knocks, NERVO, and Alisa Ueno, is easily one of the year’s best dance tracks. It’s certainly one of our top favorites, and we’re still glowing with joy from the fact that it’s been featured so prominently by Apple in their big iPhone X commercial. The NYC based alt dance duo shared an immense remix pack for Best Friend last Friday, off which comes this frisky fun, beat clobbering edit by Sophie and Tucker themselves. The energetic pumping new “Carnaval Remix” is well worth of some prismatic plumed Brazilian Carnival shenanigans. This rump shaking rendition is a Brazilian house bonanza, and it’s available from iTunes alongside three other edits on the new remix pack, here.

It’s a jumbo sized collaboration as SOFI TUKKER drops a bombshell of a groover named Best Friend, on which the Grammy nominated duo are joined by Los Angeles electronic bigwigs NERVO, New York dance darlings The Knocks, and Tokyo DJ/culture influencer Alisa Ueno. Best Friend is the sort of fiery scorching, racy pumping SOFI TUKKER banger with a deep groove and plenty of island flair. It’s so hot, it’s even been tapped for that new iPhone X commercial. SOFI TUKKER’s new song is, as its name implies, an appreciative celebration of friendship. You can catch the New York house/dance duo live when they perform at Life Is Beautiful in Vegas later this month or when they tour with Odesza this fall. I’m excited to see them yet again when Odesza makes their three night stop at the Greek in Berkeley. You can also stream and download Best Friend, here.
