During a yearly pilgrimage to Adam's Peak in Sri Lanka, Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs asked her good friend and travel companion N.A.S.A. to remix the band's "Mosquito" from their recent album of the same name

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Squish the 'Mosquito'

"We climb the mountain and together watch the sunrise," says N.A.S.A. "This year after we reached the summit and returned, Karen asked me to do this."

N.A.S.A. used a theremin provided by Karen on the remix, which adds an eerie, space-age,effect to the song. The remix remains true to the original, showcasing fuzzy guitar and shrieking vocals, but N.A.S.A. also added a buzzing sound to the mix for a literal effect that's kind of like being swarmed by alien bloodsucking parasites.
