The xx - VCR (Matthew Dear Remix)

by Rich Morris Rating:9 Release Date:2010-04-05

Good news! US electro oddity Matthew Dear has taken The XX's 'VCR' and transformed the sleepy, melancholic lilt of the original into a ridiculously good, superbly sparse, vintage Prince funk workout. Like all the best remixes, this one brings out a completely different side to a song we thought we knew. Here, when singer Romy mumbles "You used to have all the answers/ and you, you have them still" over Dear's crunching, groaning beats, it sounds like an affirmation rather than a bleary-eyed admission of co-dependency. This fully deserves the be this year's equivalent of Skream's remix of 'In for the Kill'.
