Queens Of The Stone Age / UNKLE

Today's remix is something quite special.

UNKLE had initially been thought of as an outlet for DJ Shadow's multiple talents. It was round about the time of this remix, when Shadow had left UNKLE that it became quite clear that it was James Lavelle who was indeed steering this ship after all, and with some style.

This is a remix that changes everything, and I mean, everything.The vocals have been remixed in such a way that although the structure has not been changed, the dynamics feel completely different. The bassline has been re-arranged so much it's only just recognisable as being born from the original version. As for the arrangement - just mind blowingly different from the original without losing the impact, and in fact quite hightening the tension and theme of the original. Without doubt a stunning remix.

Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stoneage is responsible for another fantastic group, The Eagles Of Death Metal.
