Why do we like this?

What really makes the rock-star look is the hair.  Hendrix knew it.  Jesus knew it.  And clearly LA's rock star DJ Tommie Sunshine knows it, as a pair of scissors have apparently not come near his head in years.  Sunshine, who resembles a fashionable Lebowski and created a name for himself in the mid-90s rave scene, has since become the go-to remixer for big label pop rock, having remixed singles from such make-up-ridden bands as Fall-Out Boy



, Good Charlotte, Panic at the Disco, Shiny Toy Guns, Kill Hannah and P.O.D.

This go-round, he lays his hands on urban planning anthem "Sprawl II" by Canadian piano-band Arcade Fire (who you might have heard of).  Sunshine smartly leaves most of the song intact, opting to use a simple kick-clap, a brooding bassline and a few simple effects creating the necessary kick to make this a 2 a.m. killer without robbing the track of its uplifting harmony.  Perfect to end the night on a high, before the crowd heads back to their homes among the mountains upon mountains of dead shopping malls.
