Gold Fields' "Dark Again" already grooves with New Wave synth, a solar guitar riff and flashy disco sheen, now a new remix by Grouplove and Captain Cuts shifts the song into a new gear on the dance floor. Chopped vocal samples create a new hook in place of guitar, flittering through bouncy bass and sun-drenched vocals. The re-imagining took Gold Fields by surprise.

"We didn't expect [Grouplove and Captain Cuts] to take it to the place they did," Gold Fields' Vin Andanar tells Rolling Stone. "That's the great thing about remixes, taking something that's not yours and making it your own." The original version of "Dark Again" is on Gold Fields forthcoming debut, Black Sun, out February 26th. Gold Fields is on tour in North America through March 2nd.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
