Skrillex & Poo Bear’s Would You Ever has already been fine fodder for some ace remixes since it first surfaced, but how’s about a cover re-work to heat things up as we prepare for the weekend? Miami’s Nitti Gritti offers up an epic new rendering of the song, lending both vocals and production talent to his new adrenaline pumping, bass shuddering interpretation. He explains of his future bass cover: “So I wanted to do this remix for a while and couldn’t get the stems so I just decided to sing and produce this version myself . Skrillex and Poor Bear inspire me so much, I look forward to working with them someday. The original honestly made me cry the first time I heard it and I hope I can convey that same emotion with my version.” Nitti Gritti certainly captures the emotional power of the original with his sweeping version of the song, a fitting tribute indeed. The track is a free download, here.

Between yesterday’s killer Templeton remix of Dancing On My Own and today’s amazing cover remix of Call Your Girlfriend, I’d say there seems to be some sort of simultaneous Robyn revival going on, perhaps spurned somewhat by her newly surfaced project La Bagatelle Magique. While I professed that Dancing On My Own was my jam the other day, I’d have to say that I’m not so sure about that anymore when the melodic hooks of Call Your Girlfriend flow through my ears. It’s my jam too, and I’m loving this rendition of the song, featuring Allison Weiss on supple vocals and Thero & Taylor Wise on remix duties. Yes, that’s two producers I’m super fond of working together on one laid back, feathery electronic edit. Despite the remix’s warm and summery aura, endearing sax included, the sadness of the original seems to be brought out even more by Allison’s aching, graceful vocals and delicate violin. Snag the tune for free, here.
