Ultraista - Gold Dayzz (Maribou State Remix)

Why do we like this?

If you remember the minor sensation the Four Tet remix of "Smalltalk" caused in September, then you may also have just been learning about Ultraista for the first time.

Their debut album, I Am Fortified, showed some sense of mastery from producer Nigel Godrich (of Radiohead fame) and the crooning vocals from Laura Bettinson. But the music leaves something to be desired, or as musicomh.com bluntly puts it, "(The album) succeeds wholeheartedly in being pleasant, listenable and totally forgettable."

But like so much indie music these days, it's the remixes that break ground and put bands on the map. I've said it before, but DJ/producers keen on the club and the dancefloor know exactly how to unlock the potential in a track, as they should. Maribou State does just that with Ultrai­sta's "Gold Dayzz."

If your ears constantly yearn for silky house thumpers, then you'll thank the London duo for this amazing remix. But let's also thank Utraista for conceiving the idea in the first place as we appreciate the difference a perspective can make.
