YouTube - Chromeo - Night By Night (Skream Remix)

Strip away the pomp rock; darken the mood; retain the breathy original vocal with its stylised vocoder treatment and undercut with snare and lashings of deliciously thick, oozing bass. If you like your dubstep glammed up and ready for nightfall, you'll love Croydon-based Skream's remix of those anachronistic Montreal rockers, Chromeo's latest outing.

There's ne'er a song that cannot be improved by running it through the wringer of the remix process and this is no exception. A slice of deconstructed funk from the New World, bettered by the best of the Old World order. Skream is at the peak of his powers, as judged by recent top tunes such as his superior arrangement of La Roux's 'In for the Kill'. Long may he continue to re-imagine likely and unlikely chart challengers.
