Remix Fix: Ra Ra Riot/Dim Sum

In theory I like the idea of the remix: taking someone else's song and tweaking it the way you want it done. It's a great means for completely redoing something, and for reinterpretation. Sometimes remixes go awry, and sometimes they're better than the original. Remix Fix is all about the happy medium when a remix totally nails it and makes a song that much better.

Two seconds in to the Dim Sum remix of Ra Ra Riot's "Absolutely" and I almost managed to forget that tomorrow is Monday. The Parisian producer definitely adds a certain something to the song, adding sticky sweet beats while keeping hold of the liveliness of the original. A great way to savor the waning, last gasp hours of the weekend.
