Miike Snow, the trio of pop super-producers who tried their hand at making a synth heavy indie album, are more relevant today (literally, today) than ever. First of all, I am currently trapped inside amidst a blizzard. Today is the today for Miike Snow. And I just happen to come across this remarkable remix of “Silvia,” a highlight of the band’s self-titled debut album. “Animal” has already been remixed more times perhaps than D.A.N.C.E, of which there were toooo many variations. Any dj trying to get attention would throw a couple loops around those kids screaming “Do the D.A.N.C.E!” and suddenly reach stardom. The same was almost true with “Animal” but some top notch remixers got a hold of the track, and we were left with some true bangers (here’s looking at you Fake Blood, Fred Falke, Crookers, and Treasure Fingers). The “Silvia” remix package too comes stacked with some A+ knob-twisters in Sinden and Felix Da Housecat, but the Robotberget (who?) remix takes the cake here. It’s pure monstrosity.

In other Miike Snow related news, Crookers put out a new single featuring Miike Snow (well basically just sampling “In Search Of” from MS’s album), and let me tell you, this is not to be missed. That crunching, deep bass line is enough for me to sell everything I own in devotion to this winning combination.
