The sisters HAIM continue to melt hearts and explode minds the world over with their irrepressible radness. Recent developments in the HAIM saga include major international airplay via BBC Radio 1 and Australia’s triple j, plus an appearance at number four on NME’s 50 Best Tracks of 2012.
Last week we featured a new video for the band’s wonderful track “Don’t Save Me.” Today, in the latest installment of All Things HAIM, we present for your consideration Cyril Hahn’s euphoric dancefloor treatment of the song. A standout feature of HAIM’s music is its airtight, glistening production, so remixing their tracks is no cakewalk – but the Swiss-born DJ does it right. His minimal house interpretation is built around simple but entrancing arpeggios and synth pads that recall Gui Boratto’s Chromophobia. The result is an airy mix that leaves ample room for Danielle Haim’s massive lead vocal to shine. Stream it below.
HAIM are currently in the midst of a world tour, with stops at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and LA’s Troubadour on the horizon. Catch them live and you’ll find that their magic isn’t a product of studio tinkering; primed by fifteen years of experience playing in a family band with their parents, these girls are genuine shredders.
