rapture sail away Check Out: Cut Copy remixes The Rapture

On January 17th, The Rapture will release a three-track EP featuring remixes of their single “Sail Away” by Cut Copy, Aeroplane, and Cosmic Kids. Right now, you can stream all three tracks below.

The Cut Copy remix is a particularly mesmerizing example of musical schizophrenia. At some eight minutes long, the synth powerhouse is comprised of various sonic bits and pieces, like the faint rumbles of disco bass, random, quirky electro noises, shreds of some mutated congo beat, and even a dash of classical piano. It’s a trip through dance music’s history, right there in your headphones.

The Sail Away EP is out January 17th via DFA. The band’s latest LP, In The Grace Of Your Love, is available now.

Along with the EP, The Rapture have announced a pair of dates with Justice around the two acts’ respective sets at this year’s Coachella Music Festival. Check out the itinerary below.
