I'm a big fan of Jens Lekman for years now. What a nice idea of him to make us HAPPY with a dj-mix of a very diffrent kind! This is romantic, but clever, and very creative, especially when the mix travels smoothly between 60's waltzes and african music! Best summer mix this year, by MILES AND MILES!
This is what Jens Lekman says about his mix:
"I got the opportunity to remix my favourite song from Au Revoir Simone's beautiful album Still Night, Still Light. While listening to the song I realised how nice it'd be to transform their straight 4/4 time synthpop into a whirlwind waltz or maybe a barcarole if you will. It took a long time to chop up all the syllables and the tiny tiny samples, but I think the result got the song into a whole swirling new direction.
While making the remix, my mind started working in 3/4 and 6/8 time. I started looking around for tracks in that time signature to make a mix, I wasn't intending to but I couldn't help it. It was all a big swirl. After a while I heard it everywhere. In soul ballads, in polyrhythmical african pop, in old movies. In the ocean waves tumbling in against the shore, in the beat of a lovers heart. One two three, one two three..."
