Deerhunter – Helicopter (Diplo & Lunace Remix)

December 27, 2010

Today I bring you another fantastic remix, this time of my favourite song from Halcyon Digest, Deerhunter’s highly praised new album. Halcyon Digest itself is a plethora of multilayered melancholy effects and delicate vocals which has thrust Deerhunter, previously bound by their weirdness to the back shelf of my itunes collection, into the indie mainstream with their most accessible and enjoyable album to date.
The remix is brought to us by Diplo, cousin of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox, in association with producer Lunice. Helicopter, already laden with gentle vocals, strange strings and echoing drumbeats, is brought to life by the fast paced beat and synth which are perfectly draped over the original song. Since there is little need to add more reverb to the vocals, Diplo & Lunice concentrate on a low pulse-like beat which makes my chair shake, and a simple synth effect suitable for any club. What i really like is how the strange effects of the original song really intertwine with and compliment the new beats, and they sound great together.
