Remix Fix: Warpaint/Soulwax

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.

I already love the sultry, city summertime swoon of Warpaint's "New Song," but there's something about the Soulwax treatment that gives the song a totally different vibe. It's less spunky and more slinky, a sophisticated, hip-shaking dancefloor dirge with a healthy dose of come-hither simmer.
