Chromeo – Over Your Shoulder (Mr. Oizo Remix) [Free Download]
If you missed Chromeo’s free download of “Over Your Shoulder” when it debuted last month, the Montreal melody makers are giving you a chance to redeem yourself, sort of. Out as a free download of its own is French producer/director Mr. Oizo’s remix of the tune, a sort of new nu take on the disco feel. Though the original’s beat has been largely kept in tact, it’s crooning vocals have been redone in a voice that brings to mind The Discovery Channel, making the lyrics sound both absurd and outrageous. More technical and less twangy, the rework definitely fills a specific niche in the electronic world – and provides an interesting commentary on what happens when we actually listen to the words.
