The Crystal Ark "Rain (Discodeine Remix)"

Just in time for DFA's 12th anniversary party this weekend—a shindig going down in NYC as part of Red Bull Music Academy's month-long series of events—we've gotten our hands on Discodeine's remix of "Rain," a cut from The Crystal Ark's recent self-titled LP. On Its remix, the French duo take "Rain" even further inside the machine than the original did, stripping the tune's vocals almost completely away in favor of focusing on a percolating bassline, quirky synth FX, and all kinds of loose-running drum machine patterns. Discodeine's remix of The Crystal Ark will be joined by others from Barker & Baumecker, Frikstailers, and Carry Nation on the Rain Remixes EP (artwork above).
