Ah, the art of the remix. Sometimes, something so left field, like the recent reworking of Gil Scott Heron by Jamie XX, works wonderfully. But the truly great remixes almost always involve like-minded artists. Case in point, Beck‘s remix of Jamie Lidell‘s song “Completely Exposed”. The track, which appeared on last year’s Compass, gets new life as a bizarro R&B number fighting off bleeps and bloops generated by Beck, creating a creature that, despite the chaos, is comprised of pure pop wonderment.
