Gossip Hypnotize on Wankelmut Remix of 'Get a Job' – Song Premiere

German producer reinterprets Portland alt-poppers' club cut

November 19, 2012 9:00 AM ET

With Beth Ditto's unmistakable grace and attitude, Gossip make pop their own, and in this remix of A Joyful Noise track "Get a Job," the bass-heavy club cut gets a clattering reworking from German producer Wankelmut. Though the original drives forward with a pulsating, beating bass and huge thundering thumps, Wankelmut's remix inserts quick click-clacks and a funky low-end groove for a subtle and hypnotic take on the track. Both are big time booty shakers, but while the original slams hard, Wankelmut shakes down.

Wankelmut's remix of "Get A Job" will be on the forthcoming A Joyful Noise RMX EP.

“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."
