Soundcloud Surfing is a weekly feature that is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of focusing on the brand new music, we dig into the Soundcloud archives and pull out some gems. This week’s theme is remixes of the inimitable Grimes. Enjoy, and check out previous editions here.
Ryan Hemsworth took Grimes’ most recognisable song, then added clattering percussion and some Lil Wayne vocals. Boom.
Four Tet’s unofficial remix of “Skin” uses a loop of the original vocals and adds shuffling percussion with ghostly results.
Making great use of Grimes’ voice, this remix will have you floating in space.
We didn’t really expect a Grimes Jersey club remix to work, but DJ Sliink’s restrained take is great.
Junglist Grimes for the win. Brilliant stuff from Canadian producer Krusha.
