What we said:
Remixing is a dark art, and one that’s tripped up many a lazy a producer who believes speeding up a song and banging a donk on it will do. But when Björk decided to have Biophilia reworked for a series of eight EPs, she purposely picked artists that she believed could twist those tracks into surprising new forms. Her faith was repaid in dividends, and Bastards rounds up the highlights. Our favorite moments are a Middle Eastern take on "Crystalline" by Syria’s Omar Souleyman, the two dirty re-rubs from hardcore/rap duo Death Grips, and These New Puritans’ spartan version of "Mutual Core", which renders the original unrecognisable with pared back piano and a choir from the Solomon Islands.
