Bon Iver partnered with Spotify and Indaba Music to hold a remix contest, asking fans to remix songs from their most-recent album. The Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project will culminate with fans voting, narrowing it down to the best remix of each of the album’s 10 tracks.
Philadelphia band Work Drugs offered their take on “Beth/Rest.” According to the track’s SoundCloud description, they headed to a cabin in the Poconos (you know, for some Bon Iver inspiration) and recorded the remix on a 10-year old Packard Bell PC they found on the side of the road, using an outdated Windows Sound Recorder.
They speed everything up and use the hell out of the saxophone track to turn “Beth/Rest” into a dance anthem. Though we haven’t heard all the remixes yet, it looks like we’ll probably be voting for Work Drugs in the Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project.
