Charli XCX "Nuclear Seasons (Hackman Remix)"
Following his latest 12" and before the release of his debut LP, As Above, So Below, Hackman turned in this excellent remix of UK synth-pop songstress Charli XCX (pictured above). As would be expected, the Leeds-based DJ/producer smooths things out a bit here, reigning in the buzzing electro-house vibes of the original in exchange for a blissfull, garage-indebted sound. Charli XCX's vocals lend themselves perfectly to the sultry, stepping beat, which chugs along underneath her plaintive croon—resulting in a version of the "Nuclear Seasons" that could very well be the high point of the tune's forthcoming single, which drops next Monday, November 21.
