Diplo remixes Sleigh Bells’ ‘Tell ‘Em’

Before listening to this, think of this combination. It has such potential. ‘Tell ‘Em’ has such remixability that when Diplo gets his hands on the elements, there’s the strong possibiltiy of this becoming even more of an explosive track.

It delivers. It takes the electronic drumming and gives it a more house-like feel. It dials back the heavy guitars and loops additional vocals to turn it into a dance anthem rather than the noise rock that has made Sleigh Bells so huge.

So if you love the Brooklyn duo, but struggle to put up with the screeching guitars (I don’t know how you couldn’t love them, but some prefer a clean sound), then this is the track for you.

Diplo says he started this ‘like a year ago’, but had to wait for the band’s guitarist Derek to send the stems. I wish it had come out sooner, I reckon this would have sounded fresher and even better had it been released a few months ago.
