With all the success that Foster the People has been having lately, remixes are inevitable. Good remixes on the other hand are not. Well, I can assure you that these remixes are definitely worth our time. RAC (Remix Artist Collective) have literally been tearing up the remix scene with all their remakes of popular indie songs and this one is no different. I’ve spent quality time on their soundcloud, so if you’re iTunes is fiending new music I suggest you mosey your way on over there. The Gigamesh remix is undoubtedly my favorite of the two. He Took ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ and made it even catchier..and we all thought it would be impossible.
Also, just a heads up but Foster the People’s first full length titled Torches is set to release May 23! I’ve been listening to it on repeat to try and make my mind up on how I feel and…you know what, it’s pretty damn good. You can preorder it on their website in the meantime.
