Chvrches - Recover (Cid Rim Remix)

Last night I bore witness to the Glaswegian madman Hudson Mohawke as he tore up the Social Club in Paris alongside other members of the prolific Lucky Me collective. To be honest, I'd never heard of Viennese producer Cid Rim, who flaunted a well groomed pencil-stache and a "RUN VIE" t-shirt with the sleeves rolled up. His set, immediately preceding Hudmo's, was largely textbook Lucky Me: lush, futuristic synths, dense percussion, and a pervasive yet subtle hip-hop bent. While the middle of his set seemed to lose momentum (and admittedly my attention), he rebounded gracefully with a few inspired tracks; his remix of Chvrches' 'Recover' actually killed it. Upon listening to the original this morning, I have to say Cid Rim succeeds in adding a whole new level of depth to the track and makes it soar. Definitely copping this one when it gets released.
