Australian outfit Cut Copy is one of those groups that's long danced at the fringes of more serious electronic music, but we didn't realize that the band was serious enough to enlist Detroit techno legend Carl Craig for a remix. The upcoming "Need You Now" remix package is set for release on April 19 and also features a rework from Gavin Russom and a new version of the song from Architecture in Helsinki, but Craig's 13-plus minute take is definitely the single's big ticket item. The remix is streaming below, and finds Craig stripping out most of the original song and instead piecing together a pulsing, synth-driven techno workout. Give it a listen and also peep all of Cut Copy's summer tour dates, which we've also listed for your convenience.
