Swedish electro-poppers Miike Snow are having quite a bit of success traveling the hard-edged dance road paved by The Knife while adding on lighter beats and peppier grooves. The track “Paddling Out” off of the duo’s recent album, Happy to You, is a sure head-bobber in its own right, and Penguin Prison‘s remix kicks the tune straight into the realm of IDM. This version manages to electronic-up an already electronic song with heavier bass beats and a slew of standard synth flourishes. The thicker atmosphere makes the song feel less nimble and hectic than the original, but it feels hotter and sweatier in exchange.
