In celebration of their joint U.S. tour (kicking off tomorrow in Portland, ME) and shared Canadian-ness, indie-rock outfit Stars and electro-pop maestro John O’Regan (AKA Diamond Rings) have swapped remixes of songs off each others’ new records.

In O’Regan’s capable hands, Stars’ “Theory of Relativity” has been transformed into a hit from a ’70s Moroccan discotheque, complete with handclaps, laser-y synths, and vibraslap. Taking a less extreme approach, Stars merely tweak O’Regan’s “Runaway Love”, making it bigger-sounding and playing up the slight hip-hop lean courtesy of a rapid-fire 808 beat.

Stars’ latest LP, The North, is in stores now via ATO Records, while O’Regan’s latest, Free Dimensional, hits shelves on October 23rd via Astralwerks. Below, you can check out both acts upcoming itineraries.
