Listen to John Talabot's and Pional's Remix of The xx

Spanish artists John Talabot and Pional have teamed up to remix "Chained," a cut lifted from The xx's recent Coexist LP. The pair's remix brings somewhat of an upbeat dancefloor quality to the otherwise subdued, and drab original. The shuffling rhythm is built with organic drum sounds, and grows with more auxiliary percussion as the piano stabs evolve in timbre and texture. While Romy Madley-Croft's vocals still retain a sullen quality, the two Spaniards definitely brought an effective helping of groove to the table, which helped render the mix a bit more buoyant than the original. You can take a listen to the music via the player below. (via FACT)
