Florence + The Machine – No Light, No Light (Dave Sitek Remix)

Dave Sitek (of TV on the Radio fame) is no stranger to remixes. He’s reworked songs by everyone from Lykke Li to 50’s blues great Dinah Washington. His newest effort is a beat-addled, club-worthy stomper – a remix of Florence + The Machine’s “No Light, No Light”, off her October album Ceremonials. ┬áSitek replaces the soaring boys choir backup vocals of the original with fidgeting 808 kick, and throws in some of his signature clatter and buzz. The TVotR guitarist and producer’s prior work with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is obvious, with gut-punch thud and skittering synth that would fit perfectly behind Karen O’s voice. Sitek hits the mark on this one; the infectious, head-bobbing layering of beats could be the “revelation” Flo sings about.
