The xx "Islands (CHLLNGR Remix)"

The first offering to come from the recently relocated California native CHLLNGR (a.k.a. Steven Borth) is this remix of The xx's oft-reworked single, "Islands." The new Copenhagen resident stripped the original of its instrumentation and placed the boy/girl duet atop throbbing low-end and reverberated percussion, but the real treat comes towards the end, when CHLLGR tweaks the vocals into a high-pitched squeal and drops more spacey elements on us—making for a smooth dubstep treatment.
