Remix Fix: Haux/Samuraii

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.

Samuraii has done remixes for the likes of Tove Lo and The Tallest Man on Earth, so there's an understanding of what to do with the tender fragility of Haux's "Caves." The velvet vocals and lightness are accentuated by the chilled out, midnight softness of the Samuraii treatment. So pretty.
