Dirty Projectors "The Socialites" (AlunaGeorge remix)
Published May 13, 2013As previously reported, today (May 13) marks the release Dirty Projectors' new remix single behind Swing Lo Magellan track "The Socialites." We had previously heard a revamp from the set courtesy of Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, and you can now stream the single's swoon-worthy interpretation from UK duo AlunaGeorge.
Opting out of the high-concept swerves of the R&B-exploring original, AlunaGeorge recasts the Amber Coffman-sung cut with a candlelit arrangement of chimes and organ before sneaking in a mild bass boom and pitch-shifted vocal samples. The extra lax back-section folds Egyptian cotton-soft synths and sneaker squeaks into the mix.
"The Socialites" remix single is available digitally and on 12-inch wax now via Domino.
As for AlunaGeorge's upcoming Body Music LP, the record has apparently been pushed from its originally reported July 1 street date to July 15.
