Full disclosure: This Outkast remix is amazing.
When the lineup for a big festival is announced, one of the first things we like to do is go through the list and piece together our dream onstage collaborations. Take this year’s Coachella, for example. OMG, what about Lana Del Rey and Neutral Milk Hotel together! And, uh… Girl Talk and Motörhead?!
OK, so those two might actually be weirder than necessary, but one unsubstantiated rumor that’s been floating around is that there will be some sort of Disclosure and Outkast team-up. While that’s probably just wishful thinking, a track released yesterday by a still-unmasked mystery artist brings the two acts together in a way that only makes us want to see it happen all the more.
The track is a mashup/cover/remix of Outkast’s “The Way You Move,” “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Ms. Jackson,” and “The Whole World” all blended together seamlessly in a style reminiscent of Disclosure’s clean two-step m.o.
As Fist In the Air points out, the information on the mp3 lists the genre as that shrugging emoticon guy, along with a note that simply says “Coachella 2014.” Not exactly enough to start booking your tickets yet, (although you probably might’ve wanted to do that by now anyway, slacker), but it’s an interesting mystery to ponder while you’re dancing around to the mix.
