Earlier this month, LA duo Rainbow Arabia (pictured above) released its debut full-length, Boys and Diamonds, and since then, the requisite trickle of bootleg remixes have been coming down the wire. Featured a couple weeks back for his free debut album, South Carolina’s Hard Mix gets on Rainbow Arabia single “Without You,” transforming it into something only vaguely resembling the original. What Hard Mix leaves out from the original is easily made up by his own heartsick interpretation of how it might feel to be “without you,” as he twists and turns the original’s vocal into painful, restless contortions. In contrast, Hard Mix grounds the mix in glistening melody and languid slow-mo house worthy of post-rain gardens or spaceship shower music. (via Pitchfork)
