Tahiti 80 "Darlin (Jimmy Edgar Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
We're just going to come out and say it: we're not exactly big fans of Tahiti 80 (pictured above). No offense to the French pop band—their tunes are perfectly fine, they're just not very XLR8R. That said, there's no denying that the group has impeccable taste when it comes to remixers. Back in November, we posted a stellar "Darlin" re-work by Barcelona's John Talabot, and now Tahiti 80 has extended their recruiting arm to our side of the Atlantic and enlisted Jimmy Edgar to have a go at the track. As those familiar with Edgar might expect, he's sexed up the proceedings with some throbbing electro beats, crunchy synths, and a seriously sleazy vibe. If Tahiti 80 keeps this up, perhaps we'll be more inclined to check out the Darlin EP when it drops next week, or the band's upcoming full-length, which is scheduled for later in the year.
