CMJ is behind us, but the hangover’s only just begun. Friendly Fires topped our list of bands to see at this year’s extravaganza, but between scouting obligations, Passion Pit blowing up all over the place and the sheer number of bands on offer they somehow fell by the wayside. A shame, as the Aeroplane remix of “Paris” has had them in heavy rotation more than ever around these parts. Au Revoir Simone helped out on the chorus of the original, but the roles are reversed here as they take the lead, the honeyed vocals setting the mood over churning basslines and sprightly synths that propel the song forward in that signature Aeroplane style. Transcendent stuff and just another reason the Belgian duo are some of the most lusted after remixers in the game right now.

I think I actually prefer this, to the orignal. Never really liked it, but this is superb, probably because it's differs so much.
