Miike Snow – Black & Blue (Caspa remix) – Free MP3

Ever since that fateful La Roux mix (which has been downloaded almost six times more than the next biggest track on this blog), we’ve been flooded with cheap imitations: two-bit dubstep pretenders throwing subsonic bass over any pop tune they can get the parts to, with scant regard for the visceral appeal of a thoughtfully put together mix.

Miike Snow could be classic victims of this cut-and-pritt-stick approach, their shiny pop ripe for ruining in the eyes of these lazy cash-in merchants. Which is why it was so amazing today to hear Caspa got there first.

His version of their next single ‘Black & Blue’ (out Oct 19th on Columbia), is a near-masterpiece, pushing just enough innard-rubbing bass under a relatively untouched track. It’s not quite as timeless as Skream’s signature, but not far off at all….
