The Original/The Remix: Shit Robot “Answering Machine”

shit robot, planningtorock, remixNew York-by-way-of-Dublin DJ, Shit Robot did a wise thing befriending James Murphy long before DFA Records and LCD Soundsystem were merely a twinkle in his eye. Shit Robot released his debut album last year on DFA Records and now some DFA artists are remixing his latest single “Answering Machine.” The original track has a fun juxtaposition between classical strings and modern synth. The remix comes from Planningtorock who forget all about juxtaposition and indulge in the classical side of the song. Solely populated by pizzicato played violin, the remix is more of a reworking than anything. It is definitely an interesting listen.
