"Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA)"

James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem unretired from remixing to make this bold 10-minute "Hello Steve Reich Mix" of Bowie's "Love Is Lost." He starts with halting hand claps (inspired by Reich) and prolongs a disjointed mood in the first half, until the keyboard hook from Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes" cues the drop of a minimalist groove that's blue, blue, electric blue. Murphy's coup is to ship Bowie back to Berlin.
