Greek electronic producer Larry Gus beautifully reworks and reconstructs Australian indie dance band Cut Copy‘s "We Are Explorers," from their fourth album "Free Your Mind", released last fall. Gus’ deconstructed version of the track is topped with bells, cymbals and a grab bag of other percussion instruments that make for a rich listening experience.
"To me, this remix epitomizes everything that is incredible and unique about Larry Gus," band founder Dan Whitford tells Rolling Stone. "He is a master at collaging together obscure sounds and live percussion to create something magically evocative and new. And with this beautiful remix he has turned ‘We Are Explorers’ into something we would never have expected."
