The new Kimono Kops remix is AMAZING

This is Thomas Dören, a.k.a. Kimono Kops.

Kimono Kops is currently our favorite remixer, having already reworked M.I.A.'s "Boyz" and made Sally Shaprio's "Hold Me So Tight" even better than it was previously (a magical POP FEAT unto itself, music fans). This morning we got a veritable sonic treat in our inbox, as Thomas has emailed us his brand new remix: Bloc Party's "I Still Remember".

Bloc Party - "I Still Remember (Kimono Kops remix)"

This is the perfect remix because it manages to turn a really shit song into a really good song. The problem with the original version of "I Still Remember" was that it was trying so hard to be all pensive and gay it completely forgot to have a decent chorus that wasn't a half-assed attempt to rip off Bronski Beat. On Kimono Kops' version though, the song is transformed into a bouncy electro-bubble of worship and longing, as we expect Kele & Co. intended the song to be in the first place. This is pop perfection and if the world is really going to degenerate into ecological disaster over the next 50 years, it will all be worth it just so a remix like this could be made.

So well done Kimono Kops, we can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve next...
